Read the first section of Allan's "Speech Act Theory" and build a definition for speech act. It should not take more than one single statement.

Speech Act refers to any act of social interaction involving three parts: speaker/ writer, hearer/ reader and context which has important requirements regarding the first one, for example, he/ she has to utter something understandable and express an intention.

Most of your definitions are quite right. I wouldn't use, however, words such as "aspects" in the first part of the definition. Instead, I'd use "utterance" or other similar terms.
