About this item

Linguists explore the cross-linguistic diversity and possible inconsistency of the span of linguistic means that signal reported speech and thought. Their topics include mixed viewpoints and the quotative-reportive cline in German: reported speech and reportive evidentiality, viewpoint fusion for realism enhancement in Ainu and Japanese narratives, how shifting viewpoints actually works across languages: an exercise in parallel text analysis, the dynamic interplay between words and pictures in picture storybooks: how visual and verbal information interact and affect the reader's viewpoint and understanding, and mixed viewpoints in factual and fictive discourse in Catalan sign language.
