Barker explains the meaning common to these three sentences in terms of assertion. An order given using an imperative sentence is analysed as a case of a speaker advertising intentions to: a) represent a state of affairs in which she desires that the hearer sees to it that a certain assertion is correct (in the sense that it is correctly asserted by anyone with perfect information); b) have the hearer believe she has this desire. If the speaker has the advertised intention b), then her utterance is an order (2004: 82) Thus in uttering (28), the speaker is, according to Barker, advertising an intention to represent a desire she has that Peter make the world such that (29) can be correctly asserted.

This is because ‘know’ is a factive verb, and assigning an intention let the hearer know that P is to accept thereby that P.

This is certainly how Frege saw it. For him, belief is the result of judging a thought true, and assertion is the manifestation of that judgement (1918–19/1997: 329). Viewed this way, assertion can only be analysed given a prior notion of belief. This order of priority is found throughout linguistics and philosophy of language.
