Hi all,

One of my friend as written an article so tio take part in a linguistics conference.

She had written down the following quotation:
« puis Searle (1972), qui souligne dans Les actes de langage que « le sens est toujours relatif à des assomptions contextuelles » ». but she cannot find it anywhere, though she read Les actes du langaage several times [Searle (J. R.), 1972/1996 : Les actes de langage, Essai de philosophie du langage, Coll. Savoir : Lettres, Hermann, Paris]

Does someone know where to find this quotation [book/edition/page]?

She will be very happy if someone can help, otherwise she'll have to use another quotation!

Dear Christine:


Your friend will find there more than 200 quotations from:

J. R. Searle. Speech Acts: An Essay in the Philosophy of Language. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, United Kingdom, 1969.

Hope it helps!
