Quotatives considers the phenomenon “quotation” from a wealth of perspectives. It consolidates findings from different strands of research, combining formal and functional approaches for the definition of reported discourse and situating the phenomenon in a broader typological and sociolinguistic perspective.

  • Provides an interface between sociolinguistic research and other linguistic disciplines, in particular discourse analysis, typology, construction grammar but also more formal approaches
  • Incorporates innovative methodology that draws on discourse analytic, typological and sociolinguistic approaches
  • Investigates the system both in its diachronic development as well as via cross-variety comparisons
  • Presents careful definition of the envelope of variation and considers alternative definitions of the phenomenon “quotation”
  • Empirical findings are reported from distribution and perception data, which allows comparing and contrasting perception and reality

From the Back Cover:

The system of speech and thought reporting of English, as well as a number of related and unrelated languages, has been the site of vast and rapid changes. This book gives an overview of the changes in the area of quotative strategies, with a particular focus on the diffusion of innovative variants and the systemic developments which result from the incursion of newcomer forms.

The volume considers the phenomenon “quotation” from a wealth of perspectives. It consolidates findings from different strands of research, combining formal and functional approaches for the definition of reported discourse and situating the phenomenon in a broader typological and sociolinguistic perspective. While the primary focus of the empirical research is on English, the book also investigates cross-linguistic similarities and differences within this linguistic domain. The volume examines the development of quotation, both from a pan-English perspective as well providing a historical overview over the competition of forms between the 1960s to the 2000s. Corpus-based research on innovative quotative forms is combined with an investigation into the ideologies attached to their users as well as regarding the linguistic acceptability of globalising linguistic forms.

About the Author:

Isabelle Buchstaller is professor for English at Leipzig University. Her research focuses on (morpho-) syntactic and discourse phenomena, including quotation, intensification and Northern English features, such as the Northern subject rule. Among her publications is Quotatives: Cross-linguistic and Cross-disciplinary Perspectives (2012, with Ingrid van Alphen), which investigates quotation cross-linguistically from a wealth of disciplines.
