Chapter Summary

This chapter commences with a group of studies that major on the sociocultural contexts of reported speech. The studies handle topics such as covert evaluative reporting; the purpose of dialogue; the evidential status of discourse. The chapter takes note of some of the ways in which speech margins can register the status of an utterance and indicates the status of the individual speech token. It discusses participant tracking devices and use of devices such as participant reference as signals of conversational dynamics. The chapter groups together various studies that reflect on the role of speech margins in the holistic narrative context. It incorporates a few miscellaneous studies; these studies make noteworthy contributions, but which didn't fit neatly under any of the previous sectional umbrellas. The chapter strongly reinforces the conviction that the choice of a speech margin is constrained by factors operating at every level of discourse.

Keywords: conversational dynamics; holistic narrative context; participant tracking devices; sociocultural contexts; speech margins
