AbstractFunctional Discourse Grammar (FDG) has its own way in dealing with illocutions. Illocutions in FDG are divided into abstract illocutions and performative verbs. This paper sheds light on the way FDG deals with illocution according to its current frame showing its inability to deal with implicit illocutions. The study suggests a new view depending on context and concept to deal with such illocutions. A new frame is proposed with analyses of different examples to test its applicability as a step towards the development of the theory.
