Presupposition and Context Sensitivity

Ernest Lepore, Adam Sennet

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We argue there is a clash between the standard treatments of context sensitivity and presupposition triggering. We use this criticism to motivate a defense of an often-discarded view about how to represent context sensitivity, according to which there are more lexically implicit items in logical form than has been appreciated.
