Abstract
The hypothesis that we try to prove in this work is that the switching of mood in Spanish relative restrictive clauses can constantly determine the specificity of indefinite antecedent NPs. For this goal, we used the 'specificity,' 'referentiality' and 'definiteness' of NPs as concepts that produce oppositions by means of existence, identification and form of their referents respectively. In chapter 2, we realized that the specific meaning of the definite NPs maintained in several works comes out to be a referential meaning allowing only referential/attributive opposition of definite NPs in an opaque context, and that the specificity of indefinite NPs can't be described by scope analysis. That is, indefinite NPs show specific/nonspecific distinction only in an opaque context and the specificity itself can diverse by descriptive contents of NPs. In chapter 3, we applied the specific and nonspecific distinctions of indefinite NPs in relative restrictive clauses and examined the distribution of the NPs in future and intentional context. Also we applied this distributional analysis when NPs occur in the subject position, which is considered as referential. Through this kind of distributional analysis we can see that the switching of mood in Spanish relative subordinates can be used as a grammatical instrument to determine the specificity of indefinite NPs.
