Many philosophers and linguists study speech act theory as a way to better understand human communication.

Speech act theory, Theory of meaning that holds that the meaning of linguistic expressions can be explained in terms of the rules governing their use in performing various speech acts (e.g., admonishing, asserting, commanding, exclaiming, promising, questioning, requesting, warning).In contrast to theories that maintain that linguistic expressions have meaning in virtue of their contribution.

Speech act theory maintains that every act has three main parts: the locution, the illocution, and the perlocution. The illocution is the intention of the speaker. The person saying Pass the salt says so because—wait for it—she wants the salt.

Speech act theory has been used to model conversations for automated classification and retrieval. Another highly-influential view of Speech Acts has been in the 'Conversation for Action' developed by Terry Winograd and Fernando Flores in their text "Understanding Computers and Cognition: A New Foundation for Design".

Arguably the most. Speech-act theory was introduced in by Oxford philosopher J.L. Austin in "How to Do Things With Words" and further developed by American philosopher J.R. Searle. It considers three levels or components of utterances: locutionary acts (the making of a meaningful statement, saying something that a hearer understands), illocutionary acts (saying something with a purpose, such as to inform Author: Richard Nordquist.

Speech Act Theory tends to focus primarily on the illocutionary aspects of speech communication – the force or intent, what you are trying to do by what you say. So let’s linger there for a post and allow the terms they use to prompt our thinking about what we intend to do when we communicate.
