Title
wollen : On the verge between quotative and reportive evidential
Author
Abstract
This paper investigates certain uses of the German modal verb wollen will, want (dubbed WILL) in which it relates non-firsthand information to a source, a function comparable to that of both reportive evidentiality and reported speech. The latter distinction is reframed in terms of a reportive-quotative opposition, and based on corpus-driven analysis the paper argues that WILL displays a combination of traits that warrant it the composite label quoportive. It is concluded that WILL, in its hybridity, is evidence for the existence of a category called referral which captures what is shared between evidentiality and reported speech.
