abstract

The paper will focus on subjunctive complements in Slavic languages, comparing them with their counterparts in Romance languages, where the subjunctive has been much more extensively studied than in Slavic. We will observe that, despite the surface morphological contrasts in subjunctive marking between these two language groups, subjunctives in Slavic and Romance nonetheless share the bulk of the underlying semantic and syntactic clausal properties. As a result, Romance and Slavic subjunctive will be analysed as constituting a common clausal mood category, which corresponds to a distinct syntactic clause type.
