Re-Definition and Alston's 'Illocutionary Acts'

Grazer Philosophische Studien 73 (1):97-111 (2006)

Abstract
The original definition of a technical term, the paper argues, should not be altered without a good reason. This notion is applied to the conception of illocutionary acts suggested by Alston, which markedly differs from the conception originally introduced by John L. Austin. Alston appears to agree with the argument; at least, he does attempt to justify his re-definition. The paper argues, however, that the reasons he gives fail.
