This paper studies forms attested in Kakataibo (Panoan, Peru) for situating the information presented by the speaker from the perspective of the addressee. The constructions discussed can satisfactorily be accounted for by means of the notions of epistemic status and epistemic stance, which have to do with the knowing status of speech act participants and how it is expressed in grammar. Salient characteristics of the mechanisms used in Kakataibo to encode addressee's perspective are the diversity of the relevant forms, which come from two different paradigms, and the semantic and pragmatic features that play a role in their distribution.
