    Summary
    The paper suggests that the notion of metarepresentation, usual in cognitive pragmatics and philosophy of language, allows for a fine-grained analysis of specific interpretive effects in represented thought and speech in the specific context of written press. It is argued, on the theoretical side, that metarepresentation can significantly improve the operability of the classical and usual concept of polyphony of the Bakhtinian tradition of discourse analysis since it’s a more technical notion. In particular, the paper aims at showing that metarepresentational analysis can be an efficient tool for tracking and explaining subtle implicatures, notably about the writer’s propositional attitude on the represented content.
