Abstract: A subset $ M$ of a topological vector space $ X$ is called lineable (respectively, spaceable) in $ X$ if there exists an infinite dimensional linear space (respectively, an infinite dimensional closed linear space) $ Y \subset M\cup \{0\}$. In this article we prove that, for every infinite dimensional closed subspace $ X$ of $ \mathcal {C}[0,1]$, the set of functions in $ X$ having infinitely many zeros in $ [0,1]$ is spaceable in $ X$. We discuss problems related to these concepts for certain subsets of some important classes of Banach spaces (such as $ \mathcal {C}[0,1]$ or Müntz spaces). We also propose several open questions in the field and study the properties of a new concept that we call the oscillating spectrum of subspaces of $ \mathcal {C}[0,1]$, as well as oscillating and annulling properties of subspaces of $ \mathcal {C}[0,1]$.
