Dr. Ali Ahmad, M. Asif Ikram Anjum, Tahira Hashim.

Abstract
The present study aims to examine the difference in the use of language in the same catastrophic and destructive
settings between Isma Pasha and Aneeka Pasha’ s characters from the novel “Home Fire” by Kamila Shamsie. The
study informs that language is not merely a medium of communication among people but in certain situations it goes
beyond communication and transforms the world of addresser and addressee as well. The present study is qualitative
descriptive research in its nature. Austin (1975)’s Speech Act Theory serves as a theoretical framework for the
present study. The data was analysed through illocutionary and perlocutionary speech act analysis in order to shed
light on the dialogues and utterances of Isma and Aneeka. The findings suggest that utterances and the use of
language determines a literary or fictional character successfully.

Key words: Illocutionary, Perlocutionary, Speech act, Commissive, Directive, Declarative
