Causal connectives have presuppositions
Effects on coherence and discourse structure

by Luuk Lagerwerf

This book is a detailed study of the discourse semantic properties
of causal connectives and their presuppositions. The interpretation
process of connectives like although and because, and their Dutch
counterparts, will be followed from the recognition of subtle
meaning differences of a connective used in different contexts, an
explanation for these differences in terms of presuppositions, an
analysis of the way these presuppositions manipulate lexical
knowledge to infer causal coherence relations and the effect of
these coherence relations on antecedents of propositional anaphors
in discourse structure.

Contents:  1. Introduction  2. Causal and contrastive relations  3.
Presuppositions for causal connectives  4. Inference and
enforcement  5. Causality in discourse structure  6. Conclusion
