The simplest cases of meaning are those where the speaker utters a sentence and means exactly and literally what he says. In such cases the speakers intends to produce a certain illocutionary effect in the hearer, and he intends to produce this effect "by means of getting the hearer to recognize his intention to produce it," and he intends to get the hearer to recognize this intention in virtue of the hearer's knowledge of the rules that govern the utterance of the sentence.

The speaker says what he means and the person that he is speaking to understands that he is saying what he means.
