On sentence types in Latin few general studies have appeared, see Rubio (1968) and Scherer (1975); in connection with illocutionary force also Bolkestein (1980a: chapter 5). General studies on illocutionary force are, apart from Austin (1962), who introduced the notion, Franck (1980: chapter 3), Lyons (1977: chapter 16) and Searle (1969; 1976). More research has been done on individual sentence types. For exclamative (and interrogative) sentences (in Plautus) Vairel-Carron (1975) can be recommended. Imperative sentences, though not described in terms of sentence types, are treated elaborately in Löfstedt (1966) and Vairel-Carron (1975). Very much has been written on the moods. Exhaustive surveys of the literature are to be found in Calboli (1966; 1968; 1983). A survey of the uses of the moods is Handford (1946). Many problematic issues are discussed by Thomas (1938). An attempt to formalize the different uses of the subjunctive is Lehmann (1973). Touratier (1977; 1983b) offers recent surveys of the various views on the moods. The approach I have chosen in this chapter is closest to that found in Rubio (1968).
