Description - Foundations of Speech Act Theory by S. L. Tsohatzidis
Although speech act notions are routinely accorded a role in theoretical discussions of the problem of meaning in linguistics and philosophy, both the extent and the details of that role have not been investigated as deeply as they deserve. The philosophers and linguists responsible for this volume's twenty two papers, all world specialists in their fields, make significant advances towards raising the standard of debate in this research area, and their investigations into the semantic, pragmatic and grammatical foundations of speech act theory will prove invaluable to scholars and postgraduate students of philosophy of language.
