SOLER, Marta  y  FLECHA, Ramón. From Austin's speech acts to communicative acts: Perspectives from Searle, Habermas and CREA. Rev. signos [online]. 2010, vol.43, suppl.2, pp.363-375. ISSN 0718-0934.

The concept of the speech act has meant that the philosophy of language has largely contributed to the study of communication processes, which are becoming more significant due to the current 'dialogic turn' in societies and in social sciences. Austin's contributions, subsequently developed by Searle, were used as the starting point for the concept of speech acts and communicative acts, which Habermas considered one of the bases for his theory of communicative action. However, in the book written jointly by Searle and CREA, the comprehension errors made by Habermas in relation to Searle´s concepts were clarified. The importance of the development of the concept of dialogic speech acts and power-related speech acts arose from this debate. This has been incorporated into the INCLuD-ED project, and its research team has continued to develop it until today in various domains. This article a is an analysis of the evolution of recent contributions to the philosophy of language, followed by an explanation of the speech acts and the communicative acts. Finally, an analysis of the relations of power and the dialogic relations present in the different communicative acts is proposed.

Palabras clave : Speech acts; dialogic communicative acts; communicative power-related acts.
