Query Subject:   Cancelling Gricean Implicatures

Linguistic LingField(s):  Pragmatics

Query:   I read somewhere that Generalized Conversational Implicatures can be
cancelled by purely syntactic features; for instance, they are not present
in downward entailing contexts. However, I don't know who discusses this
point or where.

If anyone could let me know who first raised this point, or where it has
been subsequently discussed, I'd be very grateful.
