PC6: L’emploi du subjonctif pour exprimer le doute

Quelques verbes et expressions comme « croire que, penser que, être sûr/certain que » à la forme négative ou interrogative sont suivis du subjonctif, qui exprime le doute, l’incertitude :

  • Nous ne croyons pas que d’aller au musée rende les gens plus intelligents.
  • Vous êtes sûr qu’aller au musée rende les gens plus intelligents ?

À la forme affirmative, ces verbes sont au contraire suivis de l’indicatif qui indique une certitude :

  • Nous croyons sincèrement qu’aller au musée rend les gens plus intelligents.
