Quoting in Parliamentary Question Time: Exploring Recent Change

Quoting in Parliamentary Question Time: Exploring Recent Change (Hardback)

£85.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Why does it sound so foreign to us when we hear recordings of speakers engaging in reported speech at British Prime Minister's Questions (PMQs) from the 1970-80s? This cutting-edge study explores how the practices of quoting have changed at parliamentary question time in light of changing conventions and an evolving media landscape. Comparing data from authentic audio and video recordings from 1978-1988 and 2003-2013, it provides evidence for qualitative and quantitative changes at the micro level (e.g., grammaticalisation processes in the reporting clause) and in more global structures (e.g., rhetorical patterns, and activities). These analytic findings contribute to the theoretical modelling of evidentiality in English, our understanding of constructions, interaction, and change, and of PMQs as an evolving community of practice. One of the first large-scale studies of recent change in an interactional genre of English, this ground-breaking monograph offers a framework for a diachronic interactional sociolinguistic research programme.
