The former are social and culture specific as they rest upon the speaker’s assessment of contextual factors the importance of which differs from culture to culture. It is sociopragmatic decisions that are the basis for the second kind of judgment of how to perform the speech act. Sometimes, as a result of the sociopragmatic judgments lead to the decision to opt out of the speech act by the speaker. Thus, investigations the opting out choice of a certain speech act are within the field of pragmatic research. These investigations provide useful and insightful information not only about the nature of the speech act, but also about cultural values and beliefs of the speaker.
