Konferensbidrag, övrigt
Sammanfattning (abstract):
Argues (a) that Lycan underestimates the plausibility of analyses of interrogative and imperative conditionals in terms of conditional communicative intentions and deconstructs "the simple illocutionary theory" in ways that hides its main resources for handling the kind of difficulties that Lycan is raising, and (b) that the simple theory still fails because of its constitutional inability to deal with the multitude of communicative purposes for which declarative conditionals are normally used, something which is inherent in the nesting difficulties raised by Lycan.
