    Abstract

    This chapter provides an overview of research on speech acts in Spanish in the past 15 years. It starts with a brief presentation of the key tenets of Speech Act Theory as conceived by Austin (1962) and Searle (1969, 1975, 1976), followed by a consideration of the limitations of the theory from a pragmatics perspective. In the second part, an indicative overview of speech acts research in Spanish is offered, with a focus on sociopragmatics, pragmalinguistics, cross-linguistic/cultural, and variational pragmatics studies. General trends are first outlined along various classificatory dimensions, followed by a consideration of studies according to Searle’s (1976) illocutionary acts taxonomy. The chapter concludes with reflections on future research prospects in this vibrant area.
