Abstract

This chapter analyses pragmatic markers within survivor depositions taken afterthe 1641 rebellion in Ireland. Specifically, we are concerned with those markerswhich modify or delimit evidentiality, that is degrees of commitment to participantclaims or statements. In this way we re-evaluate the ‘truth-as-evidence’nature of the depositions and query critical views of the corpus as hearsay,propaganda and a crude form of insurance claim. This shall also highlight apragmatic distinction between legal and therapeutic disclosure, opening up newavenues for pragmatic analysis of what we will call ‘the victims’ voice’.
