Attribution Semantics: Linguistic Worlds and Point of View.
Palacas, Arthur L.
Discourse Processes, v16 n3 p239-77 Jul-Sep 1993
Presents an interpretive theory assigning all text to "Linguistic Worlds" (LWs). Shows how a special deictic LW (needed for default attribution to the speaker and useful for describing parentheticals, evaluative adjectives, and epitheticals) gives the capacity to characterize shifts in point of view accompanying the indirect first-person speech of expressive language, as in temporal and stylistic shifts.
