This will help the idiots who understand John Mahama's use of satire but not AYISI Boateng's context: The study of Linguistics makes it very clear: the meaning of the High Commissioner's language DID NOT travel beyond the meeting room with the youth group. Add CONTEXT and you import exactly what was meant.

Definition of pragmatics

1 :a branch of semiotics that deals with the relation between signs or linguistic expressions and their users
2 :a branch of linguistics that is concerned with the relationship of sentences to the environment in which they occur.
