BECKER, Janaína  y  GIERING, Maria Eduarda. Reported speech in texts of scientific dissemination made up by solutionhood relation. Rev. signos [online]. 2010, vol.43, suppl.1, pp.27-44. ISSN 0718-0934.

This paper draws from DCEROT project (Portuguese acronym for Scientific Dissemination: Rhetorical Structure and Text Organization) linked to UNISINOS Applied Linguistics Graduate Programwhose objective is to investigate the macrostructural organization of scientific dissemination of texts published in Brazilian newspapers and webzine oriented to young people. The text analysis model, as proposed by Bernárdez (1995), corresponds to Rhetorical Structure Theory (RST), according to which there are relations among texts' parts, labeled nuclei and satellites. Out of 62 texts that constitute this project's corpus, 36 present solutionhood relation, whose nucleus suggests the solution to a problem expressed within the satellite. This paper examines reported speech within texts constituted by solutionhood relations, and the analysis reveals that reported speech occurrences ground the assertions of the text producer, who aims at explaining issues about scientific knowledge-related areas.

Palabras clave : Texts of scientific dissemination; rhetorical relation solutionhood; reported speech.
