Indirect speech acts and violating the maxims ~ The Linguistics Zone

Indirect speech acts and violating the maxims

Indirect speech acts are used all the time, they have basically become second nature to us. Here's an example:

A: Has the boss arrived today?
B: The light's on in his office.

Notice that speaker A has asked a yes/no question. However, speaker B did not follow up with such a reply. The point here is that B has just violated one of the aforementioned Gricean maxims (relevance). But is B's response irrelevant?

The short answer is no. We do not take everything literally, so this response makes sense (of course, this assumes the boss doesn't leave the light on when out of office!) This is just one out of many cases of an indirect speech act. These such acts violate at least one of the maxims. Good listeners/speakers notice that the maxim is intentionally being violated, and can identify its intended meaning with the knowledge of the context of the situation.

The concept of indirect rule and indirect rule in the strict sense refers to a particular type of European colonialism in the 19th and 20 Century, as is typical in particular for the British Empire, but was pursued by other colonial powers, such as the German Reich.

In the broad sense to all methods of rule Indirect rule marked in mediating the exercise of power over local and traditional structures of power occurs. In almost all British colonies (exceptions include the Caribbean and Burma), the local power structures were involved in the colonial administration.

The antonym to rule Indirect Direct Rule is: is typical of the French colonies in Africa, for example, that almost destroyed all the traditional power structures and institutions were replaced by French. This policy was linked to the idea that the bourgeois-revolutionary concept of civilization, universal and indivisible, and therefore also in the colonies should be fully applied.

In the British territory was the system of indirect rule does not apply in the so-called Crown Colonies. As an example from the past decades, the concept Direct rule is a legal name of the government as Northern Ireland by London directly subordinate to Northern Ireland Secretary.

In 1804, Czar Alexander conquered Persia in Ganja, which becomes Elizavetpol. The Treaty of Golestan in 1813 gave the Russian provinces of Persia, north of the Araks. The city of Baku is annexed and became the capital of the governorate under Turkmenchay Treaty of 1828 and the peace treaty concluded in Edirne.

During the war 1877-1878, Russia seized the region of Kars-Ardagan. In the late nineteenth century, Russia's oil wealth of the country. Baku became the world's largest producer of oil. Azeri relatively structured movement emerges at the same time.

In 1918, Azerbaijan was proclaimed an independent republic and together with its neighboring countries Transcaucasian Federal Republic. Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan existed until 1920. That's when the first democratic country with a Muslim majority in Asia, and the first predominantly Muslim country to give voting rights to women. In 1920, the country is occupied by the Red Army and attached to the USSR before being incorporated in 1922 in the Transcaucasian Federation and the USSR as the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic.

Azerbaijan declared its independence after the collapse of the communist bloc August 30, 1991.

Right out of the USSR, a war between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. This war was won by Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh became de facto independent.

Abulfaz Eltchibeï, the leader of the Popular Front of Azerbaijan (PFA), was elected president by popular vote with 55% of the vote in June 1992. Following a brief civil war, he was deposed in June 1993 and temporarily replaced by former Soviet leader Heydar Aliyev, leader of the Communist Party. The removal of Eltchibeï is "accepted" by referendum in October 1993 Aliyev was elected president with 98.8% of the vote.

In 1989, Alan Kostelecky and Stuart Samuel interactions showed that string theory could lead to spontaneous breaking of Lorentz symmetry. [5] Subsequent studies have shown that not only strings but that loop quantum theory, non-commutative field theories , braneworld scenarios and random dynamics models also involve the breaking of Lorentz symmetry. The focus on violations of Lorentz symmetry has grown rapidly in recent decades because it can emerge in these and other candidate theories of quantum gravity. During the early 90's was demonstrated in the context of bosonic string and superstring interactions of strings could also break CPT symmetry spontaneously. This work [6] suggests that kaon interferometry experiments would be very favorable for possible signals of CPT violation due to the high sensitivity of such experiments.

The EMS was conceived to facilitate experimental investigations of Lorentz and CPT symmetry, given the theoretical motivation for violations of these symmetries. One of the initial steps in 1995, was the introduction of effective interactions. [7] Although the breakdown of Lorentz symmetry are driven by structures such as string theory, the low energy effective action that appears in the EMS is independent of the underlying theory. Each term in the effective theory involves the expectation value of a tensor field in the underlying theory. These coefficients are small because they are suppressed by the Planck scale and in principle are experimentally measurable. The first case considered is the mixing of neutral mesons, since their interferometric nature makes them highly susceptible to effects suppressed.

In 1997 and 1998, two publications by Don Colladay and Alan Kostelecky gave rise to the minimum version of SME in flat spacetime. [1] [2] This provided a theoretical framework for violations of Lorentz symmetry along the entire spectrum the standard model and provided information about the type of signals to potential new experimental searches. In 2004, the terms governing violations of Lorentz symmetry in curved spacetime were published, [3] thus completing the picture of the minimal SME. In 1999, Sidney Coleman and Sheldon Glashow had an isotropic limit of the SME. [8] Terms of higher orders have been studied in various contexts, including electrodynamics
