Message 1: Use of the Term "Reporting"

Subject: Use of the Term "Reporting"

Dear Linguists,

Does anyone know who is the first to use the term 'reporting'? Or do you 
know an umbrella term which covers reported thought and perception as well 
as reported speech? As far as I know, Thompson (1994) uses 'reporting,' and 
Janssen and van der Wurff (1996) (and many others) employ 'reported speech.' 
 Thank you very much in advance. I will post a summary if I receive enough 
responses.
