    Of all the issues in the general theory of language usage, speech act theory has probably aroused the widest interest. Psychologists, forexample, have suggested that the acquisition of the concepts underlying speech acts may be a prerequisite for the acquisition of language in general,literary critics have looked to speech act theory for an illumination of textual subtleties or for an understanding of the nature of literary genres,anthropologists have hoped to find in the theory some account of the nature of magical incantations, philosophers have seen potential applications to,amongst other things, the status of ethical statements, while linguists have seen the notions of speech act theory as variously applicable to problemsin syntax, semantics, second language learning, and elsewhere

    The intricate relation of sustainability within the actual global context preserves a main role in the development of the extremely complex relationships and their interconnection. Unfortunately, we are still tributary to a quantity vision and, of course, a linear perspective, which, in any case, creates a normal disruption between the realities and the results of the evaluation, at so intimate an extent, which is enough to be invisible at first only to create sufficient irregularities within the final perception at the management level.Mainly for this reason, in the near past, the necessity of the quality approach emerged as thoroughly correlative, yet only under the pressure of the non linear factors such as the as environmental conditions along with the social and financial crisis.As the sustainable development is highly argued upon – which is incredible, primarily pertaining to the social dimension - the quality approach preserves the information flows within the limits imposed by the economic extent via the environmental and social precincts.The interest for the sustainable approach creates, in addition, the real interest for the accounting performance, involving the report, which will act as tightly related to quite a significant number of factors such as the climate exchange, the environmental degradation, the depletion of the resources as well as the recognition of the more increasing role of  global corporations – only to mention the first rate ones, which are intimately connected with the social and, implicitly, the economic changes

    Opinions Regarding Societal Resilience

    It is discussed extensively about resilience as the individual's ability to overcome difficult moments in life, and the possibility of collectives to overcome unfavorable situations. In all resilient situations, successes are possible through the use of willpower, physical and mental, being restored to the ability of the subjects to continue the actions oriented in a positive sense. The resilient approach is feasible only in the case of establishing some constructive objectives, avoiding the narrow self. Resilient intentions and concern cannot be made publicly known, being the case of the existence of a private, confidential approach of the positively oriented individual. In a synergistic manner, the concerns of the resilient subjects must be directed unitarily for the benefit of the collective. The success of the resilient approach is given by the harmonized involvement of weight structures: the mind (thinking), the heart (soul) and the physical body (natural reactions). Societal resilience must be the result of thinking and action at the level of the resilient state, the effort being corroborated with the individual effort undertaken by the common citizen

    THE INCREASE OF COMPETITION ON THE SINGLE MARKET - POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE FEEDBACK. COMMON POLICY FUNDAMENTS IN THE SPHERE OF COMPETITION

      Before setting up the European single market and competition rules at Community level, within all states there were some areas where prices were set artificially, so that marginal businesses could survive, and the cost of this protection was sidetracked onto the final consumer. In other cases, unprofitable companies were supported by various types of state aid, costs being thus borne by taxpayers. From this point of view, it was to the very benefit of citizens, as both consumers and taxpayers, that unprofitable firms should disappear from the market by the free play of competition. This common interest of EU citizens is virtually the essential driving force of multinational integration.   &nbsp

    From Sentence to Text

    We are used to applying the term text to any stretch of language which makes coherent sense in the particular context of its use. Soconspicuous a linguistic reality, the text may be either spoken or written, either as long as a book or as short as a cry for help. Linguistic form isimportant but is by no means of itself sufficient to give a stretch of a language the status of text. For example a road ÔÇô sign reading DangerousCorner is an adequate text though comprising only a short noun ÔÇô phrase. It is understood as an existential statement, paraphraseable as somethinglike There is a dangerous corner near by, with such block language features as zero article, that are expected in notices of this kind. By contrast, asign at the roadside with the same grammatical structure but reading Critical Remark is not an adequate text, because although we recognize thestructure and understand the words, the phrase can communicate nothing to us as we drive by, and thus is meaningless

    A social communication system inhering in a structured arrangement of sounds (or theirwritten representation) into larger units, i.e. morphemes, words, sentences and utterances, is calledlanguage. This system is frequently described as having three major functions:1. The descriptive function of language is to convey factual information.2. The expressive function of language is to supply information about the speaker, his or herfeelings, preferences, prejudices and past experiences.3. The social function of language serves to establish and maintain social relationships betweenpeople
