Thou shalt not take the Lord's name in vain": being a Sort of sermon on the hesitations of religious speech

Abstract : The search for the precise caracterization of regimes of enunciation leads to an exploration of different speech-acts. Religious enunciation, in a Christian tradition at least, implies a completely different type of transfer than information transfer, and also a very different one from reference chains. The enunciation structure is exemplified by the very form of a quasi-sermon which allows one to make visible again the distinction between reference-making and person-making. The effects implied by this exploration is as different from theology as reference chains are different from epistemology.
