Chapter Summary

This appendix reviews about formal proposals in semantic interpretations, context evaluations, tense and aspect, speaker oriented expressions, story update and indirect speech reports in the Konjunktiv that occur in the book The Semantics of Free Indirect Discourse. The book develops the basic idea that free indirect speech is evaluated relative to two contexts. The notion of context could conveniently be borrowed from earlier work by David Kaplan (Kaplan 1989), and the basic ideas were adopted from earlier writings in the semantic literature.

Keywords: David Kaplan; free indirect speech; semantic literature
