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.
