What is Lost Performative?
A lost performative is a value judgement which does not specify who is making the judgement of whether something is good or bad, right or wrong. It is where a person states their personal belief as a fact.
"You have lousy taste in clothes. It needed to be said."
"Your ideas are stupid."
"It's not good to eat all that fat."
"You need to drink 2 litres of water every day."
