Qs: Finding Rubrics for Speech Acts

Editor for this issue: Zac Smith <zaclinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

In my PhD research I do discourse analysis on conversations of multi
functional project teams managing change projects. Amongst others I am
using speech acts. Does anyone know if there is a rubric for speech acts
(e.g. low/weak, medium/neutral, and high/strong assertives)?

thanks in advance for your guidance
kind regards,
Jos Pieterse
