Abstract

We present here the outline of an ongoing research effort to recognize, represent, and interpret attributive constructions such as reported speech in newspaper articles. The role of reported speech is attribution: the statement does not assert some information as `true' but attributes it to some source. The description of the source and the choice of the reporting verb can express the reporter's level of confidence in the attributed material.
