Person as a subject


A tentative sketch of a theory of pragmatics. The book contains chapters on methodology, speech acts as actions, illocutions, types of illocutionary acts (in which Austin's original classification is revisited), and the dynamics of linguistic interaction (concentrating on 'manipulation' and 'sanction').
