We will show that<br />prosodic changes can function like quotation marks in written<br />texts by clearly delimiting left and right hand boundaries of the<br />reported sequence.<br /><br />In the majority of cases, however, prosodic changes do not<br />coincide with the boundaries of reported speech but occur<br />nearby, functioning like a 'frame' for the interpretation of a<br />sequence as reported or even only as a 'flag' attracting<br />attention and inviting the listener to actively (re-)construct<br />the corresponding boundaries.<br /><br />Our data analysis also provides evidence for the use of<br />prosodic designs to typify a figure in different roles, which -<br />due to their unique 'prosodic design' - can be presented<br />without any verbalized projection of upcoming reported<br />speech, once they have been introduced. This is due to the<br />'referent-tracking' nature of some prosodic designs of reported<br />utterances. eng
