Speech Acts from the Philosophical-Linguistic Perspective

(Original title: Rečové akty z aspektu filozoficko-lingvistického)
Filozofia, 60 (2005), 8, 551-572.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

During the last decades the special literature has paid relatively much attention to the problematic of speech acts. However, in Slovakia it still remains underdeve-loped. Therefore the author decided to examine it from the points of view of its establishment, gradual development and interactional communication. The paper offers a survey of all philosophical-linguistic views on this problematic. Further, it gives a more detailed analysis of the theory of the founders of the speech acts theory (Austine and Searle), comparing their main ideas with those of other philosophers and linguists.
