A special attention to speech acts is required when teaching and learning foreign language aiming to achieve more natural communication in a foreign language. We need to take care not just about language communication, but about social communication as well. It is of big importance to be familiar and to get know very well the patterns of behavior and customs of that cultural environment. The subject of this paper are the speech acts in every day communication in Greek language which are used for expressing permission, allowance, gratitude, greeting, apology, congratulation and leave-taking expressions. First of all, we are going to consider speech acts of interpersonal language function in every day communication and try to determine their alternations and equivalents in Serbian language.
