Subject: Sum: Speech acts (ref. on)

I recently asked for a couple of good recent surveys that would deal (at least
 in part) with speech acts.

These two books have been strongly recommended by several respondents :

Moeschler & Reboul (1994)
Dictionnaire encyclopedique de pragmatique
Editions du Seuil, Paris.

Schiffrin, Deborah (1994)
Approaches to discourse
Blackwell, Oxford.

There is also a small Que Sais-Je ? book on "La pragmatique" (Presses
 Universitaires de France, Paris), author unknown.
