Minds divided: Speaker attitudes in quotatives

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/konferenshandlingKapitelVetenskapligPeer review


This chapter analyzes how speakers can co-encode a reported message and
an evaluation of that message in a quotative construction. It presents a
typological account of the structures and meanings languages may employ
to express, for example, (dis)agreement with or doubt in the truth of the
message conveyed and suggests ways in which this may correlate with types
of quotative constructions. It argues that interactions between modality and
evidentiality in quotatives determine their form and function, and introduces
a constructionist model to capture these interactions. By identifying the
categories relevant for studying speaker attitudes in quotation, it aims to
present a method for the typological analysis of quotatives as ‘doublevoiced
utterances’, as conceived in Vološinov (1973) and Jakobson (1957).
