Speech Acts and Languages for Special Purposes: A Speech Acts approach to ESP

Metalogicon 1:43-60 (2005)

Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to explicit the possible extension of Speech Act theory to the analysis of sublanguages or Languages for Special Purposes , and to show in particular its relevance to the subset known as English for Special Purposes . I will primarily introduce an outline of LSP-ESP and of the Speech Act theory: then, through a survey on relevant literature, the modalities whereby Speech Acts could be made useful for English for Specific Purposes and, in so doing, I will attempt to make their applicability to ESP explicit and theory-informed, in order to reach a synthesis
