STRATEGY OF REPORTED SPEECH IN THE POLISH PRINT MEDIA IN A COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE WITH THE FRENCH PRINT MEDIA. CASE OF INDIRECT SPEECH
In this paper, we study the language conveyed by the Polish print media in a comparative perspective with the French print media. We ask ourselves how the speech of different speakers can be introduced by the journalist. In such a way, the forms of reported speech are the main object of our analysis. We focus on how journalists use formal and enunciative technics, first to protect themselves in terms of exactness of reported speech, second, to distance themselves from reported speech punctuality. We try to identify syntactic structures and mechanisms allowing journalists, entirely keeping impartiality, to guide the lecturer’s interpretation.
