Speech Acts: An Essay in the Philosophy of Language
This 1969 publication of Searle's essay provides a substantial discussion on the philosophy of Language.
How do words relate to the world? What is the difference between saying something and meaning it and saying it without meaning it? And what is the relation between what I mean when I say something and what it means whether anybody says it or not? How do words stand for things? What is it for something to be true? or false?
These are some of the questions which form the subject matter of the philosophy of language. In his essay, Searle explores the notion of the act of speech and rules of language.
