Refracting views: How to construct complex perspective in reported speech and thought in Ungarinyin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


This paper analyses reported speech, thought and epistemic modality in the North Western Australian Aboriginal language Ungarinyin. It demonstrates how these grammatical domains interact in the language to encode multiple perspective meanings. The paper concludes by discussing some implications of the Ungarinyin patterns for expressions of complex perspective elsewhere.
