On the Explanation of Invited Inferences
Wirth, Jessica
Glossa, 9, 1, 36-52, 75
It is suggested that invited inference is a case of valid inference by saying that English "if...then" sentences are logically ambigous. The ambiguity of "if...then" sentences may be related syntactically or semantically to "or.""Or,""if...then," and "and" all invite inferences. (SC)
