Abstract: The following article focusses on the use of indirect speech in German and Korean. As far as German is concerned the emphasis is first put on the peculiarities of transformation in direct and indirect speech drawing on the example of deictic markers. As a second point the adaptation of tense is described as a means of transformation.
Periphrastic subjunctive forms are depicted as a substitute for unusual or uncommon subjunctives.
An analysis of speech-introducing verbs and grammatical or lexical subjunctive paraphrases concludes the analysis of indirect speech in German.
Concerning the realization of indirect speech in Korean the use of compositional subjunctive forms and their possible contractions is described. Drawing on further examples the realization of the quotative as part of the predicate and the attribute in different tenses and sentence types is described. As an additional aspect the realization of subjunctive forms in different honorative forms is illustrated.
A description and analysis of the Evidentiality marker „ay (애)” concludes the article.
