She has been a constant promoter of modern theoretical linguistics and is currently professor emeritus at the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures of the University of Bucharest, Romania.

Her fields of scholarship are: English linguistics, Romanian linguistics, formal syntax, formal semantics, and general linguistics. In the recent years, she has mainly worked on Romanian syntax, as one of the co-authors of The Reference Grammar of Romanian.

Since she has also become a member of the Academy of Europe. Isac eds. It focuses on the decisive contribution of the semantics of the main verb with respect to mood choice in the complement clause. The first part is concerned with the choice of a framework which should be sophisticated enough to explain crosslinguistic variation in mood selection for verbs which semantically correspond to each other. In the second part of the paper we discuss mood selection in Romanian and English, on the basis of Cornilescu and Giannakidou and Mari It is shown that English and Romanian are remarkably convergent regarding mood selection, yet subtle differences are to be found.

The discussion of certain verb classes, shows that, in contrast to Romanian, English is more sensitive to veridicality and, secondly, more sensitive to assertion features than to presupposition features. For instance in dealing with hope, English ignores non-veridicality as part of the presupposition, and selects the Indicative to signal veridicality in the assertion. Keywords: subjunctive, indicative, non -veridicality, assertion, presupposition.
