Claudia Muñoz Tobar y Wilfredo Quezada Pulido, 2018: "Valor construccional y prototipicidad de metonimias
para aconsejar. Contra una lectura fuerte de la tesis
fundacional de la pragmática lingüística",
Onomázein 39, 24-47.
In this paper we analyze the data collected in an exploratory test, designed to establish a
measure of the advise illocutionary force of the 15 utterances. The analysis shows that the
pragmatic reading of expressions depends largely on their constructional features, as Pérez
(2001), Ruiz de Mendoza & Baicchi (2007) and Del Campo (2012, 2013) have proposed within
the framework of the study on illocutionary constructions. Consequently, it is not valid to
state a strong interpretation of Wittgenstein’s (1953) thesis that “the meaning is the use in
the language”. This interpretation, rejected, among others, by Searle (1969), imposes an insurmountable
limitation to the explanatory pretensions of pragmalinguistics, which does not
correlate with our results.
