  • "Not objective" = subjective. "Related to feelings" = emotive. Either or both may be applicable in any given context. – FumbleFingers Apr 8 '14 at 17:04
  • I feel the word started with "s".. And it was in a grammatical context . – Argot Apr 8 '14 at 17:05
  • Are you thinking of subjunctive? – Roger Apr 8 '14 at 17:09
  • Yes !!! Subjunctive, I want to delete the question so please delete the answers . – Argot Apr 8 '14 at 17:10

The subjunctive mood is used to express "necessity, desire, purpose, suggestion and similar ideas", which could be interpreted as "sentences relating to feelings".

  • Quite weird word and quite abstract . – Argot Apr 8 '14 at 17:16
  • Subjunctive is not a tense. In fact it says just that in the first three words of your very own link. – RegDwigнt Apr 8 '14 at 17:19
  • Gah, you're right. What I get for not paying attention when I type. Fixed. – Roger Apr 8 '14 at 17:20
  • It's also very rare in English. And, in addition, the overwhelming majority of sentences that express "necessity, desire, purpose, suggestion and similar ideas" are not subjunctive, so it's not even a good label for the category. – John Lawler Apr 8 '14 at 17:28
  • @JohnLawler I don't disagree. But, whether it's an appropriate word or not, it was the one the OP was thinking of, which is about as close to a correct answer as we'll get on this one, I think. – Roger Apr 8 '14 at 17:33

Tendential having or showing a definite tendency, bias, or purpose: a tendentious novel.


You could be thinking of "biased" or "subjective".

  • Sorry , not even close . Though it is my mistake of not able to explain properly. – Argot Apr 8 '14 at 17:03
