15 January 2016, Workshop "Backgrounded reports: commitment and negation in parenthetical reports and reportative evidentials", Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands

Speaker: Regine Eckardt, Martina Faller, Julie Hunter, Todor Koev, Corien Bary & Emar Maier
Date: Friday 15 January 2016
Location: Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands

There are various forms of reported speech in which the aspect of reporting is somehow backgrounded, or not-at-issue. and the content of the report itself, i.e., the complement or quoted phrase, serves as the main point. In this workshop we want to bring together the more or less disjoint strands of research on the different classes of backgrounded reporting to explore the possibilities of a unified approach of all these phenomena that takes into account the relevant facts about commitment, denial, and projection.
