dc.description.abstract In traditional modelling approaches, such as entity-relationship modelling, the predominant information modelling problem is how to represent external reality in the system in a ‘true’ way. In these approaches semantic aspects of language are in focus. In contrast to this, the main information modelling problem could be to understand how information systems may support a meaningful use of language and information in a social action context. The paper presents an information modelling approach based on speech act theory that takes both semantic and pragmatic aspects into consideration. With such an approach it is possible to reconcile traditional information modelling and the pragmatic aspects of language and information use. Such reconciliation is essential to arrive at information systems that support meaningful communication between different actors within a social action context. en_US
