u̱t-Ma'in reported speech

Discourse reporting in African storytelling is a collaborative project hosted at CNRS-LLACAN, Villejuif, France. With 20+ project team members and collaborators, we are interested in traditional oral storytelling practices across West Africa. Specifically, we are investigating the relationship between specific discourse patterns and the linguistic strategies they rely on in quoted speech and other reported speech environments.
