ABSTRACT

The purpose of this article is to examine a different use of terminology in studies regarding larger units than a sentence, to explore meanings that need considering when interpreting a meaning of utterance, and to formulate a manner that a meaning acts in the meaning of utterance and a process of interpretation on the meaning of utterance. First, a classification of 'locutionary' and 'utterance' has been made in this article by defining a 'locutionary' as linguistic expressions without a context, and an 'utterance' as linguistic expressions within a context. The units which belong to the former are described as locutionary word, locutionary phrase, locutionary sentence, locutionary paragraph, and locutionary text. The units which belong to the latter are described as word utterance, phrase utterance, sentence utterance, paragraph utterance, text utterance. Second, the cotext meaning is described as a binding meaning; since cotext meaning is to be added to meanings of words or sentences themselves in a locutionary meaning. And the context meaning is described as a speech act meaning; since context meaning is to be added to meanings of words, sentences or text themselves in an utterance meaning. Finally, in this article, a formulation has been made about an analysis process of utterance meaning; locutionary meaning, i.e., literal and binding meaning, attitudes of speakers and listeners, i.e., background and intention, relations of speakers between listeners, i.e., position, age and intimacy, a setting of utterance, i.e., time, space and event, deixis of utterance.
