This paper provides a description of the linguistic realization of evidential functions in Catalan Sign Language (henceforth ÔLSCÕ), a topic that has barely received any attention in the literature. The focus is on evidential values expressed by an interactional structure, namely a direct discourse constituent. This is a frequently occurring means of expressing source of information across languages, spoken as well as signed, which nevertheless remains largely underexplored.
