    WHAT IS A SPEECH ACT? 1 2 What is a Speech Act? John Searle I. Introduction I n a typical speech situation involving a speaker, a hearer, and an utterance by the speaker, there are many kinds of acts associated with the speaker’s utterance. The speaker will characteristically have moved his jaw and tongue and made noises. Affirmative answers to such questions will provide a welcome further justification of our use of “speech act theory”. 9. Speech Acts and Social Issues.

It considers three levels or components of utterances: locutionary acts (the making of a meaningful statement, saying something that a hearer understands), illocutionary acts (saying something with a purpose, such as to inform Author: Richard Nordquist. Transcribers made judgments to determine what speech act the utterance carried out and wrote a two-character speech act verb at the head of each utterance. The same two-character speech act verbs had to be used by all six transcribers to indicate the speech act classification.

    This book presents a new classification of speech acts. It is an alter native to all previously published classifications of speech acts. The classification proposed here is based on an extensive set of data, name lyon all the verbs designating linguistic activities and aspects thereof. A theoretically and methodologically justifiable method is used to proceed in a number of steps from these.   To solve this, there is a general classification system list of function performed by speech acts that can be used. D. Speech Act Classification One general classification system lists five types of general function performed by speech acts: Declaration Representative Expressive Directive Commissive 1.
