Query:   Dear Linguists,

Does anyone know who is the first to use the term 'reporting'? Or do you
know an umbrella term which covers reported thought and perception as well
as reported speech? As far as I know, Thompson (1994) uses 'reporting,' and
Janssen and van der Wurff (1996) (and many others) employ 'reported speech.'
Thank you very much in advance. I will post a summary if I receive enough


Janssen, Th. A. J. M. and Wim van der Wurff. 1996. Reported Speech: Forms
and Functions of the Verb. John Benjamins.
Thompson, Geoff. 1994. Collins COBUILD English Guides 5: Reporting.
