The Logic of Conventional Implicatures

Christopher Potts

Oxford University Press

Grice’s definition of conventional implicatures, employed throughout this book, has four primary components: conventionality, speaker commitment, speaker orientation, and semantic independence. This closing chapter explores the regions around the core cases of conventional implicature by asking, for each of these central properties, what happens if we remove it from the definition. Some of these alterations characterize rich areas of natural language meaning, whereas others seem unattested.

Keywords:   conventionality, speaker commitment, implicatures, speaker orientation, semantic independence
