Article in journal
Seconding the criticism of pragmatics by D. Franck (1981: 'Severe sins of pragmatics'), S. suggests (among other things) four interrelated sets of speech act categories as the minimum needed if you want to analyze a text as to action, strategy, and content. The multidimensionality of speech act categories proposed resembles those of H.Arndt (1979a: 'Some neglected types of speech function') and H.Rossipal (1979: 'Kommunikationsaktstufen bzw. Wissens- und Wertungsstufen').
