Considérations Sémantiques Et Pragmatiques
La Transparence Dans Le Discours Indirect
Danielle Forget: Semantical and pragmatical aspects of transparency in indirect discourse. It is argued that indirect discourse cannot be characterized only by a "neutral syntax" and a semantical opacity. A sentence constructed with an indirect speech is part of the reporter's discourse, which allows an interpretation of its referential frame. Moreover, we found that there are linguistic contexts which lead to a transparent interpretation of a sentence containing an indirect discourse: the reporter does not only retransmit but at the same time involve himself towards the truth of the proposition or part of it.
