Someone may express a claim within a system of presuppositions held by his hearers. The presuppositions are, however, not part of the claim, and the truth‐value of the claim does not depend on the truth‐value of the presuppositions. The presuppositions of a culture also act to limit the range over which type sentences have clear meanings. A statement being true is a matter of its truth—conditions being satisfied to the degree of accuracy appropriate in the context.
