(p.281) Chapter 9 Speech acts and functions
A History of Psycholinguistics

Willem J.M. Levelt

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers parallel European functionalist approaches to psycholinguistics. It reviews the slightly fragmented history of ideas on language-in-use, as it was developed by Philip Wegener, Alan Gardiner, Karl Bühler, and the Prague School. It emphasizes that these ideas developed mostly on the margins of structuralism and just outside mainstream psychology. Speech acts and functions are also discussed.

Keywords:   speech acts, functions, functionalist approaches, history of ideas, language-in-use
