Title: Issues in the Semantics and Pragmatics of Disjunction
Written By: Mandy Simons
Description:

This book opens by accounting for the felicity conditions on clausal disjunction in terms of general principles of information update, and goes on to demonstrate that these conditions provide the basis for an account of both the presupposition projection properties of disjunction, and the possibility of anaphora between disjuncts. This book will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in linguistics and the philosophy of language.
