Typologie vs linguistique générale : un essai
TYPOLOGY VS GENERAL LINGUISTICS : AN ESSAY
Languages of publication
In this paper, I take up the case of quotative evidentials and their (non-?)existence in Romance languages, in an attempt to illustrate the fact that the dialogue between typological linguistics and general linguistics is essential. I review briefly the case of grammaticalization from a typological point of view, and the category of evidentiality, before discussing the case of discourse markers specialized in the introduction of reported speech, in Romance languages.
