Abstract

Pragmatic studies focus on the use of a language in relation to its context. One of the notions of pragmatics is a study of how language is used to communicate, especially the relationship between sentences and the context and situations in which they are used. The speech act is one of the pragmatic sub-studies. Speech acts are closely related to human activities that cannot be separated from language, either individually or in groups. In speech acts, speakers and speech partners must understand each other the rules of the language that govern this, so that speech act activities can run well. Each speech participant is responsible for each of these lingual interactions, where a context has a role in forming a speech act. Furthermore, speech acts are the utterance of sentences to state so that the intent of the speaker is known to the listener. He distinguishes three aspects related to speech, namely locational, illoccionary, and per focusary. Locusionary is merely the act of speaking, namely the act of saying something with words and sentences in accordance with the meaning of the word (in the dictionary) and the meaning of the sentence is in accordance with the syntactic rules.
