"Grice'sche Kommunikation und Perlokutionen". Linguistische Berichte 188 (2001), 441–458.

In his “Speech Acts” (1969) Searle criticizes Grice’s account of “meaning” for mistakenly involving what Austin called “perlocutionary effects”. Searle argued that the only effect aimed at in Gricean communication be understanding. Some of the followers of Grice, for example Schiffer (1972) and Meggle (1997), didn’t assume Searle’s claim. Others, for example Bach & Harnish (1979) and Davis (1999), did, but all of them without going into deeper discussion of the issue. The present article tries to support Searle’s decision by examining the force of his arguments and providing some further evidence.
