Abstract

In this study, we compare three approaches to epistemic stance: Akio Kamio’s Theory of Territories of Information (intended as a bridge between evidentiality and politeness) and his distinction between direct and indirect forms of utterances; John Heritage’s differentiation between epistemic status and epistemic stance and between speakers’ more knowledgeable and less knowledgeable positions; our theoretical model, which includes three epistemic positions : knowing, unknowing, believing (not knowing whether). Similarities and differences among these three approaches and their applicability to the analysis of naturally occurring conversations are discussed.
