 Greek Verbs (Shorter Definitions)
Grammatical voice indicates whether the subject is the performer of the action of the verb (active voice), or the subject is the recipient of the action (passive voice).
The indicative mood is the only mood conceived of as actual while with the other three moods (imperative, subjunctive, and optative) the action is only thought of as possible or potential.
However if the subjunctive mood is used in a purpose or result clause, then the action should not be thought of as a possible result, but should be viewed as a definite outcome that will happen as a result of another stated action.

 Grammatical mood (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.unc.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Grammatical mood per se is not the same thing as grammatical tense or grammatical aspect, although these concepts are conflated to some degree in many languages, including English and most other modern Indo-European languages, insofar as the same word patterns are used to express more than one of these concepts at the same time.
The subjunctive mood figures prominently in the grammar of the Romance languages, which require this mood for certain types of dependent clauses.
The conditional mood does not express uncertainty; this is a distinct mood, the potential mood, which is expressed with the words "probably" or "may" in English.

"grammatical form indicating the function of a verb," 1569, an alteration of mode (1), but the grammatical and musical (1597) usages of it influenced the meaning of mood (1) in phrases such as light-hearted mood.

This led to a sense of "mood, temporary state of mind" (first recorded 1525); the sense of "amusing quality, funniness" is first recorded 1682, probably via sense of "whim, caprice" (1565), which also produced the verb sense of "indulge," first attested 1588.

 Grammatical mood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In linguistics, many grammars have the concept of grammatical mood (or mode), which describes the relationship of a verb with reality and intent.
The renarrative mood is a similar grammatical verb category that exists in some languages such as Bulgarian and Turkish.
In certain other languages, the dubitative mood is employed instead of the subjunctive in referring to doubtful or unlikely happenings and the like (see the main article).

 Grammatical mood (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.unc.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
It occurs only in main clauses and normally introduces subordinate clauses which are headed by a phrase roughly meaning on the condition that, such as if, as long as, etc., and these phrases can have their meaning intensified by items like even, as in even if.
However, despite this, linguistics tends to be the only area in which such discrimination takes place, and in foreign language courses it is frequent that non-temporally-related linguistic phenomena such as the conditional mood and all aspectual (grammatical aspect) distinctions are referred to superordinately as tenses.
Few languages have an optative as a distinct mood; Ancient Greek, Sanskrit and Finnish are three that do.

 SILEBR 2004/010 — Review of “Mood and modality (2nd edition)”   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
In this book, Palmer treats “modality” as a valid cross-language grammatical category that, along with tense and aspect, is notionally concerned with the event or situation that is reported by an utterance.
However, he says that unlike tense and aspect which are categories associated with the nature of the event itself, modality is concerned with the status of the proposition that describes the event.
According to Palmer, three grammatical categories predominate in the expression of the notional categories: (1) affixation of verbs, (2) modal verbs, and (3) particles.

The force of the grammatical construction is thus shown in the translation.
The conditional nature, hidden by a wrong translation, is shown by the mood, and the activity of the subject is noted in the middle voice—a deathblow to the Five Points.

 Indo-European Grammar: Mood
In language generally, the grammatical category MOOD distinguishes functional pragmatic categories related to speaker attitude or intent.
Indicative mood forms give information that the speaker views as true (factual), while with imperatives speakers tell hearers what they want to have accomplished (give commands).
In many languages a range of information that the speaker does not intend to state as a fact or intend as an action to be carried out may be marked as subjunctive or optative.

 Mother Tongue Annoyances » Jimi Hendrix and the Subjunctive Mood
For all verbs except to be, the present subjunctive mood is most often made by omitting the characteristic s ending on verbs with third-person singular subjects.
For the verb to be, we simply use be for all present tense subjunctive mood verbs and were for all past tense forms, regardless of whether the subject is singular or plural.
In my opinion, the subjunctive is one of those grammatical elements that is often overlooked but is nevertheless important to master because skill in this area can add a high degree of polish to your speaking and writing.

 Talk:Grammatical mood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Japanese, the negative is a distinct grammatical mood.
This means that the injunctive should be either: (a) a mood which takes its aspect from context, or (b) a mood which is used for mentioning an event ocurring (maybe translatable as "I remember that..."?) If I could get my hands on the paper proper, I could perhaps get a better handle on things.
If there were truly no subjunctive mood in English we would say "I wish I am a millionaire" but everybody would agree this is ungrammatical whether they know what the subjunctive mood is or not.

 SOME ADDITIONAL ASPECTS OF SEMANTIC INDEFINITENESS OF PROVERBS
We suppose, however, this scale should fit in with the nature of the proverb, and it has, incidentally, the virtues that it (a) operates with concepts general enough, and (b) allows to consider the set of its subfunctions (or functional aspects) as a unified system.
The functional aspects mentioned are in certain relationship with grammatical moods of the sentence.
Hence the illusion may arise that proverbs can be classified functionally straight on the ground of their "superficial" grammatical moods, so that the proverbs with stating (designative, informative) function were represented with indicative sentences, and those with normative (prescriptive, evocative) function, respectively, with imperative sentences.

 Are there any languages that punctuate mood? | Ask MetaFilter
Well, you could argue that all punctuation is "mood punctuation," in that it's a visual mark that attempts to help the words mimic human speech.
The use of mood punctuation seems an inevitable byproduct of the use of written language for chat programs, etc.: the most direct analog to an online chat is a face-to-face conversation, which leaves the absence of the emotional information conveyed by body language much more apparent, hence the invention of emoticons.
I basically agree with frogan that much (not all) punctuation could be called "mood punctuation," but it would still be interesting to see if there are pre-internet antecedents.

Their study leads to general issues such as the source of grammatical categories, the evolution of language, language and cognition, metaphor and first language acquisition.
Few introductions to syntax or linguistics in general even mention the grammatical categories of tense, aspect, mood, case, number, gender and voice, or transitivity, to use the current term.
Nonetheless the categories are studied by language typologists; tense, aspect and mood have long attracted serious attention among cognitive scientists, discourse analysts and philosophers; and two recent semantics textbooks make room for tense, aspect, mood and case.

A simple dictionary entry may contain information about the form of the word treated, its grammatical characterization, its definition, synonyms, or translation equivalents, its etymology, cross-references to other entries, usage information, and examples.
These we refer to as the constituent parts or constituents of the entry; some dictionary constituents possess no internal structure, while others are most naturally viewed as groups of smaller elements, which may be marked in their own right.
Dictionaries may describe the meanings of words in a wide variety of different ways — by means of synonyms, paraphrases, translations into other languages, formal definitions in various highly stylized forms, etc.
