Abstract:

This book aims to provide a new, linguistically grounded typology of speech
and thought representation in English on the basis of the systematic study
of deictic, syntactic and semantic properties of authentic examples drawn
from literary as well as non-literary sources.

In the area beyond direct and indirect speech or thought, 'free indirect
discourse' has often been implicitly treated as a residual category that
can accommodate anything that is neither one nor the other. This book takes
a fresh look at the evidence in the area of deixis, particularly through a
close study of pronoun and proper name use, and proposes to distinguish the
more character-oriented free indirect type from a narrator-oriented
'distancing' indirect type, which is grammatically wholly structured from
the narrator's deictic standpoint. Unlike free indirect representations,
which coherently represent the character's viewpoint, the distancing
indirect type sees narrators appropriating character discourse for their
own purposes, which may for instance be ironic. The distinctions thus drawn
shed new light on the much debated 'dual voice' approach to free indirect
discourse.

Included in the scope of this book are subjectified uses of clauses such as
'I think', which no longer primarily construe a cognition process, but
rather come to function as hedges. Such speaker-encoding uses are argued to
involve an interpersonal type of structure, not based on complementation,
whereas the non-subjectified cases receive an interclausal complementation
analysis which does not have recourse to the problematic notion of
'reporting verb'.

This monograph is mainly of interest to researchers and graduate students
interested in the syntax, semantics, and pragmatics of reported speech
viewed from a constructional perspective.
