Die Bedeutung von Infinitiv und Konjunktiv als Modi der Nicht-Mitteilung (unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des Italienischen)

Claudia Pichler (Klagenfurt)


 

Abstract

The infinitive (also referred to as "Nennform") is positioned both formally and functionally between noun and verb. This so-called "intermediate status" and the pragmatic-communicative characteristics/functions resulting from it are described on the basis of a selection of Old Italian language samples. The study therefore examines the correlation between morphosyntactic and informational structure and focuses in particular on the morphosyntactic codification of thematic elements of expression. An accordance can be ascertained regarding the pragmatic-communicative characteristics/functions of the infinitive ( i.e. infinitive constructions of the type: definite article + infinitive + subject) and the (thematic) subjunctive.
