• Speech Act is a functional unit in
communication. (Austin’s theory 1962)
• Furthermore, to communicate is to express a
certain attitude, and the type of speech act
being performed corresponds to the type of
attitude being expressed. (Bach 1994)
• Asan act of communication, a speech act succeeds if the audience
identifies, in accordance with the speaker’s intention, the attitude
being expressed.

• Some speech acts, are not primarily acts of communication but of

affecting institutional states of affairs. (Bach 1994)

meaning of the utterance.
 2. Illocutionary: Is related to the social function
that the utterance or the written text has.
 3. Perlocutionary: Is the result or effect that is
produced by the utterance in the given context.
 Suppose that a bartender utters the words: “The

2. Illocutionary: The act of informing the customers of
