Abstract

In conversation, both addresser and addressee are the speakers oflanguage. As the speakers of language, they rely on their knowledge of appropriate condition in evelY moment, both when they produce and decode utterances. This also happens in literary work Discourse analysts agree that discourse is a form of language use. Discourse analysis tries to go beyond such common sense. As stated in the previous chapter, literature itself is a context, and as with any utterance, the way people produce and understand literiii)' works depends on unspoken, culturallyshared knowledge of the rules, conventions, and expectations. Thus, there is no utterance is completely context free in terms ofmeaning aad function. One of the linguistic studies that can be applied to aid reader in understanding a dialogue is a speech act. Applying speech act theory to literary works is often helpful when people try to understand a dialogue. Speech act can be defined as "the act of saying". It means that when people are 'saying' utterances, they are also 'doing' acts at the same time. Therefore, people can do things with words as saying is doing. In this context, performative utterances are analyzed. Performative utterance is an utterance which describes and performs certain acts at once. The condition that allows utterances to act as performatives is called as felicitous condition. This felicitous condition must be fulfilled ifa certain act is to be said to be carried out properly/felicitously.
