Where has this idea come from that the word 'utterance' was coin in 1985? J.L. Austin uses the term repeatedly in his lectures 'How to do things with words' originally from 1955. 109.156.12.245 (talk) 10:43, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

I think this article ought to be redirected to the pragmatics article - the only technical meaning of "utterance" that I'm aware of is that used in linguistics.--Lo2u 11:14, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

How do you figure? Utterance has more than a few definitions. Gautam Discuss 19:21, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
It is also used in narratology, most importantly in Bakhtin´s theory of polyfony. That is, it is not only used in linguistics but also in different types of cultural studies and philosophy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.240.163.90 (talk) 14:29, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Addition of child directed speech[edit]

In the section of utterances child directed speech plays a key role. Studies have been conducted where parents socioeconomic statuses have been studied due to how that affects the amount and type of utterances that are directed towards their children and how that in turn affects their utterances and speech development. In addition how utterances allow room for interpretation and different meanings can arise from it and just the overall development of utterances needs to be added to this article.

Future contributions to "Utterance" wikipedia page[edit]

Hi! My name is Alexandria and I am currently taking a sociology class in FIU. For my class there is a wikipedia project in which we pick an article that needs more information added to it to work on for the rest of the semester and I chose this one. The information that i plan on adding to this article includes:spoken language characteristics that affect utterances like paralinguistic features, prosodic features, and ellipsis. In addition non-fluency features including: voiced/un-voiced pauses, tag questions, false alerts, fillers, accent/dialect, deictic expressions, simple conjunctions and colloquial lexis. I will also be adding Differences b/w speech and planned writing and how utterances are portrayed in both, studies of speech: like H.P Grice (1975) and his maxims of quantity, relation, manner, and quality, uses of rhetoric, and frameworks of speech:discourse structure, graphology, lexis, grammar/ syntax, phonology, pragmatics. [3]

In addition, utterances and child directed speech [4] [5] In addition under child directed speech (utterances used by parents directed to children and how that affects development of language and utterances used by children, which ultimately creates a cycle and developmental of language in the world) i will add the uses of :phonology, lexis and semantics, grammar, amount of one-word utterances, research of studies used to support this information like: Berko and Brown (1960), Katherine Nelson (1975), etc, and pragmatics.
