Chapter Summary

This chapter is focused on French (and English) literature. In the chapter, Gérald Prince paints - in broad strokes - a picture of the ways of study of 'attributive discourse'. Fleur van der Houwen's study of conversational Mexican Spanish develops a powerful hypothesis linking certain formal choices in the speech margins to the choice between direct and indirect quotation. Andrea Vlatten contrasts the state of research into German reported speech with the state of the discipline elsewhere. Ivan Fonagay's study of Hungarian touches on the pragmatics of the location of the speech margin relative to a direct quote. The author has surveyed some of the ways that various modern Western languages utilize speech margin variation for pragmatic purposes. He lists the formal and functional issues discussed in the chapter, and includes some cross-references to other chapters of the monograph.

Keywords: Hungarian; conversational Mexican Spanish; French literature; German reported speech; modern Western languages; speech margin
