MoodProperty is the class of properties that concern the grammatical encoding of mood or force of a proposition. Among the traditionally defined properties are Declarative, Imperative and Interrogative. These are a somewhat mixed bag of attitude (e.g. optative, volitive, subjunctive) and speech-act (e.g. imperative, commissive) values.
