Speech acts and conversation ~ The Linguistics Zone

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Speech acts and conversation

The topic of speech acts and conversation is an often overlooked aspect of linguistics. People use language as a tool to do things, such as asking questions, offering greetings, and performing many other verbal actions in everyday life. Mastery of language is not limited to just grammatical competence. If that were the case, then every sentence would have only one interpretation.

Compare the following situations:

Case 1: A police officer stops you, and informs you that you've driven through a stop sign. You reply, "I didn't see the stop sign."

Case 2: A friend is throwing a party and has given you directions to his new house. The directions mention to take a left at the 2nd stop sign. You arrive about an hour late and reply "I didn't see the stop sign."

Notice that the context has a huge role in determining the meaning of the sentence uttered. In case 1, you are uttering an explanation for failing to stop. In case 2, you are making an excuse for your lateness.

***
Upcoming posts on this blog will cover more on this topic of speech acts and conversation.

I'll hep my father, who has a masters in Linguistics, and teaches English as a Second Language to adults, to you blog. My blog is called "conversations, etc." and the URL is conversationsetc.blogspot.com. I hope that came out clearly.

It is amazing how many words can have their meaning switched based on context.

I am involved in sales and I have to say that this can make or break a sale based on assuming what people are saying and not trying to understand the context in which they are saying it.

Reputation Management said...

I like the distinction.One caveat I would add is this: before we can identify the speech act performed, we need to know, not only the purpose, but whether the speaker intended that purpose to be recognized by the audience.Take the empty question. I think that the empty question really is a question, but that it may also be an invitation to converse.

This is my favorite part of linguistics - pragmatics. If I remember H.P. Grice's rules of conversation, the utterances break the rule of relevance and imbue the meaning different from the literal meaning... just like the question of logical possibility - could you pass the salt? as a polite request. Glad I found this blog.

Carb Blocker said...

WHAT IS DIETRINE CARB BLOCKER AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

During the digestive process, your body converts carbohydrates, found in starchy foods such as potatoes and pasta, into sugar. Your body does this by breaking-down the carbohydrate molecule with alpha amylase, an enzyme that is produced in the pancreas.

These sugar calories are either burned off, through exercise, or stored as fat cells for future use. Unfortunately, inactivity means that these stored fat cells accumulate. The result is weight gain. Dietrine Carb Blocker with Phase 2®, an exclusive, all-natural nutritional ingredient extracted from white kidney beans, "neutralizes" the digestive enzyme alpha amylase before it can convert starch into glucose, thereby reducing the amount of carbs absorbed. Essentially, it allows the carbohydrates to pass through the system with less caloric intake.* Preliminary research and clinical studies indicate that the Phase 2® starch blocker may reduce the absorption of starch, thereby reducing the amount of carbs absorbed, resulting in significantly less net caloric intake.

The History of the Constitution deals with the history of the constitution in the modern sense. It is a subfield of history and especially the history of law, as well as an auxiliary science of jurisprudence, in which it is used for historical interpretation and generally contributes to a better understanding.

The constitutional history can be the basis of the conceptual categories of the theory of the state structure or penetrate. It should be noted that the terms are themselves subject to a historical formation and transformation process (see etymology), and their anachronistic use should be avoided. To historical circumstances from the perspective of the people to understand the particular historical epoch is important to note further that even social conditions and sciences are subject to a development process (see also social history and history of science).

This, in contrast, it is just straightforward and beneficial when used for scientific historical investigation, the latest findings and methods.

There are many reasons that readers do not leave comments: reluctance to be public, confusion about how to jetta turbocharger, or nothing substantive to say. Use statistics to keep track of how many readers are visiting your blog; that's a much better measure of success. And if readership grows, that's a better measure of approval.

Conversation pieces is a term used for group portraits painted mainly the United Kingdom in the eighteenth century, from the decade of 1720. Could be translated as "portraits of conversation", but usually in Castilian is left untranslated. They are distinguished by his portrayal of a group apparently dedicated to a conversation or some other kind of activity, often abroad. Typically, it would be a group of members of the same family, but could include friends, and some groups of friends, members of a society or hunter, or some other grouping. Normally the paintings are relatively small, about as high as the size of a head or a half-length portrait.

The genre evolved from the seventeenth century portrait in the Netherlands, where he painted many portraits of the group, both family groups and groups such as governors or regents institutions, or civic militia officers. Frans Hals, Rembrandt and other artists had adopted a variety of poses to ease the group portrait, for example the famous Night Watch.

There are many varieties of conversation piece. People can be photographed sharing common activities such as hunting, or banquets and musical evenings. It also often represent dogs or horses. Arthur Devis was a regional painter famous for its small conversation pieces, popular with the gentry of Cheshire. William Hogarth also worked on gender, and parodied in his engraving A Modern Midnight Conversation, which represents a group of men whose conversation has degenerated into drunken incoherent. The German artist, settled in England, Johann Zoffany, specializing in complicated conversation pieces, and most of the portraits of George Stubbs take this form, with horses and carriages in its composition. Joshua Reynolds would receive orders for this type of painting in the Grand Style, and usually in the size range close to natural.

The term "conversation piece" later acquired a different meaning. Came to refer to objects that were seen as interesting enough to make you talk about them. Provide an incentive to engage in conversation. The conversation sometimes original pieces representing a group united in conversation around an object, which would typically be something related to science or learning.

Here one must begin by saying that we are in 1969. Since only two years of the competition is transmitted in color, the limits of possibility were still very tight. Lulu's is like a performance from existing sugar and honey cake, which was decorated with marzipan and pink frosting. Even more clearly than in the (then) controversial appearance by Sandie Shaw in 1967, the exaggerated drifts, doll-like femininity from phased into parody. Therefore - somehow out of competition - a place in the top 10 A place which would have also to Sandie Shaw could go to the color television had prevailed in 1967.
