Chapter Summary

This chapter first describes the various sentence moods, and then explains the interrogative sentence type in Tshangla. It presents that the sentence moods operate at the level of the proposition, i.e. at the semantic level, rather than at the level of the speech act, i.e. the pragmatic level. This evidence comes from the interaction between the imperative sentence mood and indirect quotes. The chapter also presents a brief discussion of the interaction between interrogative and the sentence moods, where evidence is shown to suggest that the interrogative and declarative sentence types represent distinct speech acts, while the sentence moods do not represent distinct speech acts, but rather modify the proposition at the propositional-semantic level.

Keywords: declarative sentence type; interrogative sentence type; sentence moods; speech act; Tshangla
