Example text

The operations over these other information states will however be the same as the ones considered here. In the next sections, we will characterise assert as the operation of updating modulo consistency and informativeness, presuppose1 as the operation of identifying a given propositional concept in the current common ground, presuppose2 as the operation of presuppose1 supplemented with accommodation in case presupposel would not give a result and delete as the operation of removing an identified part from the common ground.

The bindings are then passed over to the assertion. As we saw, (Van der Sandt, 1989) makes a convincing case for the categorisation of presupposition as a kind of anaphora. It appears that the inverse thesis that anaphora is a special case of presupposition is equally illuminating and that it would be useful to treat both phenomena as roughly the same and involving the same interaction with scope phenomena and intensionality.

1 Assertion In this section we try to characterise the operation of asserting material to a database. This is different from trying to define the concept of an assertive sentence. Sentences which on syntactic grounds should be classified as assertions may not involve an assertion at all. The concept of the focus of an assertive sentence is what links the two notions: the focus is that part of an assertive sentence which is asserted in the database. The topic part of the sentence does not fall in the scope of the assert operation.
