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
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.
