what's the difference between illocutionary acts and performative utterances?

2 posts in this topic


hi, I'm new to philosophy and I'm helplessly confused about illocutionary acts and performative utterances.

In my saying 'I promise to do...', I perform the promise, wouldn't this be same as an illocutionary act? What's the difference then, between illocutionary/performative?

Thx a lot. Really appreciate any help!
