Subject: Sum: Verbs of Saying

Last Friday (Feb. 11) I posted a query regarding the exact reference
of an article which I believed was entitled "Verbs of Saying". While I
didn't receive any replies for an article with exactly that title I did
receive several other references on the topic of indirect speech that I
thought might be of interest to other LINGUIST readers. Thanks to
Maher Awad, Bill Croft, Philip Davis, Jane Edwards, Beth Levin, and
Candace McKenna for the suggestions/discussion. --Lisa Reed
