As is obvious from Thomas Kohnen’s contribution, diachronic speech act analysis has now become a major field of research within the new discipline of historical pragmatics. However, the historical study of speech acts encounters many problems. With the rise of corpus-linguistic methods we get problems having to do with the identification of speech acts. Another problem is specific to the historical study of speech acts: Can we, for example, be certain that the same pragmatic principles constrain meaning and interpretation over time and across different societies?

Such neologisms are, for example, as if (a marker of emphatic rejection which is found both in Norwegian and in English) and the interjection duh. The English examples of as if and duh were primarily represented in COCA (Corpus of Contemporary American English).

Leech’s notion of politeness as conflict avoidance has been further expanded in Brown and Levinson’s (1987) formulation of politeness as avoiding or reducing face-threat.
