@article{chemlaspector:eSI, abstract = {Scalar implicatures are traditionally viewed as pragmatic inferences which result from a reasoning about speakers` communicative intentions (Grice 1989). This view has been challenged in recent years by theories which propose that scalar implica- tures are a grammatical phenomenon. Such theories claim that scalar implicatures can be computed in embedded positions and enter into the recursive computation of meaning---something that is not expected under the traditional, pragmatic view. Recently, Geurts and Pouscoulous (2009) presented an experimental study in which embedded scalar implicatures were not detected. Using a novel version of the truth value judgment tasks, we provide evidence that subjects sometimes compute embed- ded scalar implicatures.}, author = {Emmanuel Chemla and Benjamin Spector}, date-added = {2009-10-17 19:51:57 +0200}, date-modified = {2017-02-23 23:07:24 +0000}, doi = {10.1093/jos/ffq023}, journal = {Journal of Semantics}, keywords = {scalar implicatures, localism, globalism, experiment}, number = {3}, pages = {359--400}, title = {Experimental evidence for embedded scalar implicatures}, url = {http://www.emmanuel.chemla.free.fr/Material/Chemla-Spector-eSI.pdf}, url_2_page_version = {http://www.emmanuel.chemla.free.fr/Material/Chemla-Spector-eSI-abstract.pdf}, volume = {28}, year = {2011}, bdsk-url-1 = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/jos/ffq023}}
