Abstract (Spanish)
El objetivo de esta tesina es aplicar la propuesta para una explicación del modo subjuntivo en oraciones complejas que presentan Vesterinen & Bylund (2013) a un debate político contemporáneo partiendo de la hipótesis que esa explicación sí puede explicar la variación en modo observada en el debate. La propuesta explica la apariencia del modo subjuntivo en cláusulas subordinadas con la noción de que la proposición de la subordinada está fuera del dominio del conceptualizador en uno de dos sentidos: fuera del dominio epistémico o fuera del dominio de control efectivo. Es decir, el subjuntivo designa que el conceptualizador considera como no verdadero el evento que describe el verbo o que la realización de lo que se describe depende de otras... (More)

Es decir, el subjuntivo designa que el conceptualizador considera como no verdadero el evento que describe el verbo o que la realización de lo que se describe depende de otras personas. En el análisis se han estudiado ejemplos de variación de modo de un debate de la televisión entre los líderes de los dos partidos políticos españoles Ciudadanos y Podemos. Además, se han aplicado los conceptos de dominios a características discursivas generales del debate. La propuesta estudiada ofrece una explicación cognitiva que quiere abarcar una gama de contextos más amplia que otras explicaciones y el análisis concluye que la propuesta sí puede explicar los casos analizados.

Abstract
The objective of this paper is to apply the proposal presented by Vesterinen & Bylund (2013) for the explanation of the Spanish subjunctive mood in a contemporary political debate. It is assumed that the proposal will be able to explain the variations of mood observed in the debate. The proposal explains the occurrence of the subjunctive mood in subordinate clauses with the notion that the propositional content of the subordinate is located outside the conceptualizer’s dominion in one of two ways: either outside the conceptualizer’s epistemic dominion or outside the dominion of effective control. That is, the subjunctive mood designates that the conceptualizer either considers the event described by the verb to be not true, or that the... (More)

It is assumed that the proposal will be able to explain the variations of mood observed in the debate. The proposal explains the occurrence of the subjunctive mood in subordinate clauses with the notion that the propositional content of the subordinate is located outside the conceptualizer’s dominion in one of two ways: either outside the conceptualizer’s epistemic dominion or outside the dominion of effective control. That is, the subjunctive mood designates that the conceptualizer either considers the event described by the verb to be not true, or that the execution of the action described by the verb depends on other people. The analysis studies examples of mood variation taken from a televised political debate between the leaders the the two Spanish political parties Ciudadanos and Podemos. The dominion concepts were also applied to the general discursive traits of the debate. The studied proposal offers a cognitive explanation which aims at covering a wider array of contexts than other explanations. The analysis concludes that the proposal was able to explain the studied cases. (Less)
