Voices in the Text: Discourse Perspectives on Language Reports.
Thompson, Geoff
Applied Linguistics, v17 n4 p501-30 Dec 1996
Investigates how language events are reported in English. The article outlines four dimensions of choice for the reporter in any language: (1) the voice presented as the report's source; (2) the way in which the message is reported; (3) the reporting signal; and (4) the reporter's attitude. Some possible applications of the framework are outlined. (59 references) (Author/CK)
