Resumen:   The higher degree of morphosyntactical complexity that “Complex Conditional Connectors” (CCC) show in comparison with “if clauses” is due to the higher specificity of the syntactical functions which they perform. In fact, the high CCC frequency in specialised genres, such as legal or bureaucratic texts, is related to their expression of “necessary and sufficient condition”. Starting from the taxonomies suggested by Montolío (1991, 1999) and Venuti (2000) and from the analysis of two homogeneous corpora, this paper analyses the typology of CCC used in Spanish and Italian Criminal Legislation. The observation of typical contexts of occurrence reveals that the semantic traits of each CCC determine its appropriateness conditions and justifies its possible absence in the textual genre of reference. The conventions of Spanish and Italian legislative genre favour the occurrence of CCCs which are neutral towards the epistemic status of the statement (p) and which rigorously express the point of view of the institutional norm – hence avoiding exposing the writer's attitude. Contrastive analysis of both corpora also shows that a different “coercive force” in Spanish and Italian may be associated to identical signifiers, for example “a condizione che” and “a condición de que”.
