On Saying

American Philosophical Quarterly 13 (2):123 - 127 (1976)
Disambiguations of 'saying' are presented, As a means of sorting and clarifying the many meanings and senses of that word whose confusions have clouded the literature on speech acts. The resulting analysis of saying is either an improved version of austin's or an alternative analysis, Depending on how significant the departures seem. In the second part, An account is given of "uttering a sentence as a sentence" ("a propos" of austin's characterization of the phatic act)
