Description:

New Edition

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
contemporary 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 naturallyoccurring talk, the authors examine existing linguistic and
sociological studies, and offer some 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.

- Draws on investigations and techniques in conversation analysis
- Provides detailed analyses of reported speech in naturally occurring
interaction
- Looks at reported speech in a wide range of contexts, and in three different
languages
