A Preliminary Probe into the Pragmatic Features of Reported Speech in Chinese Courtroom Discourse

MA Zejun;LIU Jia;School of Foreign Languages,Dalian University of Technology;  
In courtroom discourse,reported speech is frequently used by participants as a language strategy. With transcriptions of 20 authentic criminal cases as the data,and linguistic adaptation theory and principles of goal-direction as the theoretical basis,the present study aims to analyze the pragmatic features of reported speech used in Chinese courtroom discourse. The findings suggest that,reported speech used in court is the language choice made by speakers to make adaptations to the three worlds of the context and to fulfill their communicative purposes,and it pragmatically presents variety in reported voices,fact-inclination in reported content and goal-orientation in reporting attitudes.
