Sample text

Examples taken from secondary literature are quoted with the information as provided in the studies they are taken from, followed by a reference to the latter, which can be found in the list of references at the back.

Where this is relevant, underlining is used to highlight the element or structure under discussion. While the research reported on in this study is based on attested data as far as its specialized topic permits, it is not a large-scale quantitative study of STR in the spirit of Semino and Short (2004).

As Chapter five on person deixis argues, a crucial question which has tended to be overlooked is whether it is the current or represented speaker who determines the accessibility coding (cf. Ariel 1990) of noun phrases referring to the represented speaker and addressee. The choice for ‘full’ noun phrases coding a low degree of mental accessibility to the (current) addressee is, in this approach, compatible only with DIST, a current speaker-oriented type, whereas FIST is defined more narrowly than is customary as a type representing the represented speaker’s expressivity and accessibility organization, and thus permitting only pronouns to refer to the inherently highly accessible represented speaker and addressee.

The analysis can be extended to IST, since all that will be discussed here is the manner of constructional ‘assembly’ of reporting and reported clause. The syntagmatic differences between DST and IST will be discussed in section 4. (21) He said “I’m leaving”. Following the discussion in section 2, we can identify the component structures of (21) as the reporting clause He said on the one hand, and the reported clause I’m leaving on the other hand. Of these component structures, the reporting clause He said taken on its own is semantically incomplete, whereas “I’m leaving” can function on its own.
