The present work focuses on the discursive phenomenon of self-quotation, that we define with Rosier (2008, 118) as « the staging of one's own speech or opinion in the service of a specific argument on the mode of recall (I told you that) or performative mode (I tell you that).» Our aim is to study the particular functioning of self-quotation within the Scandinavian theory of linguistic polyphony (ScaPoLine). Depending on whether the self-quotation is in the mode of an earlier saying or a present one, we will postulate a typology of speakers: homogeneous speaker (self-quotation in the present) and heterogeneous speaker (self-quotation in the past).
