The theme of this special issue is the distribution of indicative and subjunctive in languages that display this distinction in the mood category. Mood distribution and interpretation has not been deprived of enough attention in descriptive grammars and traditional linguistics, but it has never become a major focal topic in theoretical approaches. Mostly overshadowed by other verbal categories such as aspect or tense, mood often appears in the discussion of other phenomena as a co-occurring factor.
