Module assignments


Speech act theory has paved the way for an investigation of ordinary language and language use across speech communities. The goal of this seminar is to the theory and practice of speech act theory, considering speech acts and their constitutive parts, felicity conditions and context. We will analyse and discuss direct and indirect speech acts as well as face-threatening acts, in particular offers and refusals, requests, apologies, thanking, and the discourse-based acts of (re)tweeting.
