In formulating the semantics-pragmatics distinction, I have made no attempt to characterize the job of semantics.

In her recently published book Presupposition and Delimitation of Semantics Kempson () argues that in the work of linguists such as the Lakoffs, the Kiparskys and Fillmore, problems concerning the semantic and the pragmatic nature of presuppositions have been conflated, and, moreover, that the notion of presupposition has no place in semantics.

This paper examines the roles which presupposition and implicature play with respect to what is asserted by a text and to its context, as a part of the process of text understanding. This process involves constructing and updating the representation. Some examples — the presupposition triggers are underlined in each example.

For the first three categories, the presupposition is also an entailment of the S sentence (though not the negated version of S). For the last two, the presupposition is not entailed by S — these are sometimes called conventional implicatures.

Over the past few decades, presupposition and implicature have risen to a pre‐eminent place in semantics and pragmatics.

They are now among the most trusted and widely explored sources of insight into how language and context interact, the role of social cognition in shaping linguistic behavior, and the nature of linguistic meaning itself. Abstract. To presuppose something is to take it for granted in a way that contrasts with asserting it.

For example, if one assertively utters (1a) It was Sam who broke the typewriter. one presupposes that the typewriter was broken and asserts that Sam was the one who did it.

labelled as presuppositions. In short, for Kempson and Wilson the presupposition bonanza of the last five or six years is over. The delimitation of semantics means the elimination of presuppositions.

Both books represent a reaction to the ever-increasing volume of work, mainly by. Introduction. Presupposition is originated in the field of philosophy and it was proposed by German philosopher Ferge in In the s, presupposition entered the area of linguistics and became a significant concept in semantics.
