Activity-based communication analysis (ACA) is constituted as an interdisciplinary approach for analyzing social activity inspired by areas such as philosophy, linguistics, anthropology, psychology and sociology. It was originally coined by Jens Allwood.[1] ACA has evolved from a criticism of some shortcomings in texts put forward by scholars (such as Wittgenstein; Austin; Searle; Sacks; Grice; Sinclair & Coulthard).
