THE LOGICAL STRUCTURE OF LANGUAGE: FROM SPEECH ACTS TO ‎THE ESTABLISHMENT OF SOCIAL REALITY IN THE PHILOSOPHY OF ‎‎

The purpose of the present study is to analyze the logical relations between reasonable language and ‎the ontology, within John Searle's philosophy of language, so according to the critical attitude ‎which is set forth by Searle through his arguments about meaning theory, by reviewing the doctrines ‎of external realism, and re-correct some contemporary linguistic philosophy errors, he has attempted ‎to answer the question how do we realize the social reality, and how can words be associated with ‎physical existence ?, What he intended to do is to show that certain of any statements or ‎propositions to be meaningfully demand be verified virtually, Therefor this condition depends on ‎the communicative operation of speech acts which derived from intentional phenomena like ‎‎(promises, desires, beliefs, hopes etc.), this assumption states that the only statements that can be ‎meaningful are those that would have been seen as a fact, in this case, it requires the concept of ‎satisfaction conditions, which determines the verification principle's truth, Searle also pointed out ‎that the performance of speech acts can involve institutional facts when we try to translate our ‎intellectual intentions into real applications through examine the objects, relations, powers, ‎functions, acts.. and so are of these facts which we find in the invisible ontology‎.

Keywords: Language, Speech Acts, Meaning, Intentionality, Social Reality‎.
