From Speech Acts to Speech Actions

    Opis produktu

    ‘From speech acts to speech actions- and back’ outlines recent developments in speech act theory (and pragmatics). It ties together many strands from classical thinking and earlier conceptions, with a new view on how speech theory could be further developed. I am impressed by the width and depth of the author’s knowledge and insight – on many occasions I found myself overtaken by her considerations, such as when she deftly combines my concept of the pragmeme with the independently developed notion of the ‘meme’. I find chapter five (and the entire book for that matter) extremely well researched and well-written. It will be suitable as a text in postgraduate and graduate courses, but will also stand out as an independent an important theoretical contribution.
