Content, Mood, and Force

Abstract : In this survey paper I start from two classical theses of speech act theory : that speech act content is uniformly propositional, and that sentence mood encodes illocutionary force. These theses have been questioned in recent work, both in philosophy and linguistics. The force/content distinction itself -- a cornerstone of twentieth-century philosophy of language -- has come to be rejected by some theorists, unmoved by the famous 'Frege-Geach' argument. The paper reviews some of these debates.
