Abstract:
			
John Benjamins Publishing would like to announce the publication of
the following title in the field of Pragmatics:
Essays in Speech Act Theory
Daniel Vanderveken and Susumu Kubo (eds.)
Universite du Quebec, Trois Rivieres/University of Matsuyama

Any study of communication must take into account the nature and role
of speech acts in a broad context. This book addresses questions such
as: 
- What do we mean? 
- How do we say it? and 
-How is it understood?
in the broad context of universal, socio-cultural and psychological
issues that bear on human communication. It presents an overview of
current issues in speech act theory that are at the center of human
and social sciences dealing with language, thought and action,
building on John Searle's famous article "How
Performatives Work" (included in this book). 
The contributions by linguists, psychologists, computer scientists,
and philosophers thus address issues of communicati! on that are
crucial in conversation analysis, cognitive science, artificial
intelligence, psychology and philosophy, and a general understanding
of how we communicate.
The book is suitable for courses with an extensive
bibliography for further reading and an Index. 

Contributions by: Daniel Vanderveken; André Leclerc; John R. Searle;
Candida J. de Sousa Melo; Alain Trognon; Steven Davis; Tomoyuki
Yamada; Bernard Moulin and Daniel Rousseau; Susumu Kubo; Masa-aki
Yamanashi; Jacques Moeschler; Marc Dominicy and Nathalie Franken; Marc
Dominicy & Nathalie Franken.
