Summary/Abstract: Studying speech acts is an interesting method in the study of language. This article adopts J. L. Austin’s understanding of speech acts and it aims to present his ideas for performatives and to introduce new notion “meta-constatives”. To accomplish this goal first we will briefly introduce analytic philosophy’s context, with which we can explicate philosophy of ordinary language, speech acts and in particular performatives. In the second part of the article meta-constatives will be presented. The later are utterances, with which we can show how things in the world must be. In the second part of the article we will also turn our attention towards imperative sentences, through which we build meta-constatives. Also, a relation between performatives and meta-constatives will be created. Finally, the article points out differences between meta-constatives and imperatives.
