SearleVsGrice: (lemon example): the soldier did not mean ... (intention/meaning/meaning independent) - supplement: H should recognize that the uttered sentence is uttered conventionally to achieve a certain effect.
Grice E.g. Arab traders: "damned ...": one can say that the trader thinks the customer should come in, but the sentence does not mean it - lemon example: not the sentence but the situation is decisive.
