Abstract

Abstract: Speech Act is an influential theory on the actual communicative 
function of language and tries to answer to what extent impartial interaction 
is possible between speakers. The theory was first developed by Austin and 
Searle. They argued that order-words have primary meaning and clearly 
convey the message of the speaker. Derrida challenged the theory and 
disposed of the argument. Using speech acts and Derrida’s disposal, Deleuze 
and Guattari brought a new perspective to the argument and developed new 
ideas different from the ones already existing. This paper aims to discuss to 
what extent Austen, Searle, Derrida, Deleuze and Guattari contributed to 
communication theory.
