Between grammar and discourse: Completives with para infinitive / subjunctivein a socio-communicative context


Spoken language gives up some resources which show communicative competence of speakers in conjunction with grammar. In this paper we are able to show that subjunctive and infinitive in spoken completive clauses (para que) are used as discursive devices in a previous socio-communicative context: the informal interview. Results reveals that some important differences in several grammatical factors of each verbal form shape a discursive value used by speakers as a communicative strategy, such personal, theme and personal management.
