Sentence Meaning I 24
Illocutionary force / meaning / Searle / Cresswell: Thesis: sentence meaning is the illocutionary force (acting force) - Cresswell: then it must be possible that the same sentence occurs with a different illocutionary force (on another occasion) - The best thing you could then say is that sentence meaning is a function of usage contexts (conditions of use) on the force that the sentence had if it was used in the situation - CresswellVsSearle: but only the truth conditional semantics takes the problem of embedding seriously.
