Abstract:
			
The present volume unites 15 papers on reported discourse from a wide
genetic and geographical variety of languages. Besides the treatment
of traditional problems of reported discourse like the classification
of its intermediate categories, the book reflects in particular how
its grammatical, semantic, and pragmatic properties have repercussions
in other linguistic domains like tense-aspect-modality, evidentiality,
reference tracking and pronominal categories, and the
grammaticalization history of quotative constructions. Almost all
papers present a major shift away from analyzing reported discourse
with the help of abstract transformational principles toward embedding
it in functional and pragmatic aspects of language. Another central
methodological approach pervading this collection consists in the
discourse-oriented examination of reported discourse based on large
corpora of spoken or written texts which is increasingly replacing
analyses of constructed de-contextualized utterances prevalent in many
earlier treatments. The book closes with a comprehensive bibliography
on reported discourse of about 1.000 entries.
