Title: Reporting Talk
Subtitle: Reported speech in interaction
Edited By: Elizabeth Holt
Rebecca Clift
Series Title: Studies in Interactional Sociolinguistics 24
Description:

Reported speech, whereby we quote the words of others, is used in many
different types of interaction. In this revealing study, a team of leading
experts explore how reported speech is designed, the actions it is used to
perform, and how it fits into the environments in which it is used. Using
the most recent techniques of conversation analysis, the authors show how
speech is reported in a wide range of contexts- including ordinary
conversation, storytelling, news interviews, courtroom trials and
medium-sitter interactions. Providing detailed analyses of reported speech
in naturally-occurring talk, the authors examine existing linguistic and
sociological studies, and offer some pioneering new insights into the
phenomenon. Bringing together work from the most recent investigations in
conversation analysis, this book will be invaluable to all those interested
in the study of interaction, in particular how we report the speech of
others, and the different forms this can take.
