Uma aproximação cognitiva ao modo conjuntivo

Abstract [en]

The present paper analyses the semantic meaning of the subjunctive mood from the standpoint of Cognitive Grammar (Langacker 1987, 1991, 2008). It is shown that the subjunctive mood appears in grammatical contexts where the described event is outside the conceptualizer’s dominion: either because of a minimal possibility to actively exert control over the described event, either because the event does not correspond to the conceptualizer’s conception of reality. Thus, it is argued that the semantic meaning of the subjunctive mood is associated with events and propositions outside the conceptualizer’s dominion. The analysis focuses on complements of volitional, epistemic and factive verbs, and on relative clauses
