John Benjamins Publishing would like to call your attention to the
following title in the field of Functional Linguistics:

Reanimated Voices
Speech reporting in a historical-pragmatic perspective
Daniel E. Collins (Ohio State University)
Pragmatics &amp; Beyond NS, 85
United States and Canada: 1 58811 023 0&nbsp;&nbsp; USD 114.00 (Hardcover)
Rest of world: 90 272 5104 5&nbsp; NLG 250.00 (Hardcover)

Reanimated Voices addresses three activities: reporters evoking speech
events; interpreters (re)constituting those speech events; and
historical pragmaticians eavesdropping in time on the reporters and
interpreters. Can one reconstruct aspects of pragmatic competence on
the basis of written texts only? Reanimated Voices answers this in the
affirmative. It offers a methodology for historical-pragmatic
reconstruction to explain the synchronic patterns of variation in
premodern writings.

Reanimated Voices examines the distribution of reporting strategies in
a corpus of medieval Russian texts. Forms preferred in specific
recurring contexts are matched with the need(s) served by those
contexts - a fit reflecting collective intentionality. Occasional
&quot;residual forms&quot; -strategies that appear in contexts where
others predominate- also reflect cooperative behavior; they index
utterances departing from the prototype or unusual configurations of
participants. Thus Reanimated Voices explores reporting as an activity
of rational agents coordinating interpretation in accordance with
cultural and institutional notions of relevance.
