The problem of indirect speech acts is tightly connected with the problem of  illocative strength of expression. The problem is how to make possible  understanding of indirect speech act by a hearer, when hearable and  understandable means something more.  Analysis of illocative strength of expression showed that the same speech  act can be realized by means of some different sentences.  The direct meaning of sentences is the element of language system, as the  language is included into the sphere of a human activity, so the speech act is  necessary to consider in more wide context.  The main function of an interrogative sentence is the expression of  question.
