i Expectations.

This article addresses fictionality in relation to general theories of communication, and speech act theory in particular. It argues that fictionality may be seen as a result of an indirect speech act, an idea first exercised by Gérard Genette, then repudiated by Richard Walsh. I reason that the flaws pointed out

by Walsh are not, in fact, inherent in a concept of indirect speech acts. The article contents that indirect speech explains why the concept of truthfulness is crucial for fictionality, and accounts for the importance of the intention of the communicator and the expectations of the recipient.
