Evidential fictive interaction (in Ungarinyin and Russian)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


This chapter introduces and examines the notion of “evidential fictive participants”
and their grammatical expression in utterances of fictive interaction. It focuses on fictive direct speech constructions and draws on examples from the Australian Aboriginal language Ungarinyin and Russian. After presenting data from these languages the chapter suggests that through the notion of participants fictive interaction forms a framework for grammatical typology. This framework has both a strong philosophical and analytical foundation and allows for an integrated approach to grammatical categories based on their relation to the conversation frame.
