The main aim of the study is to ascertain contrastively, in English and Spanish, how directive speech acts are represented in film discourse. For the purpose of the investigation, the directive speech acts of 24 films, 12 in English and 12 in Spanish, were extracted and analysed. A classification taxonomy, inspired by previous research, was created in order to categorize the different types of directive speech acts and determine their level of in directness. The results show that indirectness is more widely represented in the English than in the Spanish film scripts, thus confirming the assertion that being indirect is a distinctive feature of English native speakers Grundy, This research makes a valuable contribution to the exploration of speech acts in filmspeak and informs the existing local grammar descriptions of the linguistic patterns of directive speech acts. This paper investigates the representation of directive speech acts DSAs in film scripts contrastively. The two main objectives of the study are 1 to investigate the linguistic and pragmatic representation of DSA in British English and Peninsular Spanish films; 2 to analyse contrastively how DSA are performed in British English and Spanish, focussing on the level of directness of the DSA.
It rings truer. Why am I always at weddings and never getting married? At the first wedding we witness, Charles meets a fancily free American woman — Carrie — who catches his eye. He fumbles their introduction, but she turns the tables on him and does the seducing. They have a tryst that night yet she departs for the United States the following morning. In the ceremonies that follow we will see them always be pulled apart from each other for one reason or another — and we will meet the rest of his friends and be involved in their vicissitudes, successes and failures — as if we ourselves were acquaintances at all these different affairs. The latter is a character out of a Shakespeare comedy — displaying bawdy humor and a lust for life, food and booze.

There are many ways to measure up a reboot to its original predecessor, but in the case of Four Weddings And A Funeral, a film renowned for its liberal use of swear words, the only logical way to decide whether the TV show is worth its salt or not is to analyse its use of expletives. A classic conundrum. It's the same, but different and, as such, it's become clear that the only way to truly, critically compare the film and the TV show is to have a good old fashioned swear off. The OG Four Weddings And A Funeral is renowned for its posh boy's potty mouth — audience members even walked out of a screening in Salt Lake City thanks to the opening scene's frequency of fucks — and yet it still managed to get two Oscar nominations, four Baftas and a Golden Globe award.
