Dear all,
I am interested in the use of reportatives in different sentence types in
different languages. I would like to know whether a reportative can be used
in interrogative and imperative sentences. If it can be used in
interrogatives, what does this mean? Can one use the reportative in
sentences in order to report someone else's question, does it mean that you
are asking about what has been said or does it have any other effect? Would
would the use of the reportative with imperatives mean? Any examples and
references will be highly appreciated!
