Description Logical analysis of natural language allows to extract semantic relations that are not revealed for standard full text search methods. Intensional logic systems, such as the Transparent Intensional Logic (TIL), can rigorously describe even the higher-order relations between the speaker and the content or meaning of the discourse. In this paper, we concentrate on the mechanism of logical analysis of direct and indirect discourse by means of TIL. We explicate the procedure within the Normal Translation Algorithm (NTA) for Transparent Intensional Logic (TIL), which covers the language analysis on the syntactic and semantic levels. Particular examples in the text are presented in syntactically complicated free-word-order language, viz the Czech language.
