Surface Structure and Presupposition
Hornby, Peter A.
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 13, 5, 530-538, Oct 74
Two experiments measured the frequency of perceptual errors as a function of differential presupposition in descriptive sentences. More errors occurred when misrepresentation involved presupposition than when it involved the focused proposition. Several surface structures of English, in combination, increased the presuppositional strength of the sentences. (Author/RM)
