According to what Joaquín Primo Pacheco presented in class on speech act theory, I have found of much interest an example that, from my point of view, exemplifies the Austin-Lakoff disagreement on their views of what a speech act. Furthermore this youtube entrance shows how sociolinguistics affect not only the bibliography we got to finish our studies (oh, we'r almost in the end ,come on! one last effort mates!!! ) but also our daily grind and, such powerful areas as politics, in which language is used (not to say manipulated) in order to keep power.
