After the briefest introduction, this chapter on the moods of the verb begins (Lectures 36–7) with the imperative (including the ‘future’ imperative) in commands and prohibitions. The chapter then discusses in turn the modal particles in Greek (□ν, κε, etc.), and uses of the indicative in all three languages (Lecture 38); the subjunctive and optative in Greek (Lectures 39–40); and the subjunctive in Latin, at considerable length (Lectures 41–2), and, much more briefly, Germanic (Lecture 42).

Keywords:   command, future imperative, imperative, indicative, modal particle, mood, optative, prohibition, subjunctive
