Enlightened Update: Informative Presupposition in a Computational Architecture for Pragmatic Reasoning

Abstract

We relate the theory of presupposition accommodation to a computational framework for reasoning in conversation. We characterize the evolution of the conversational state as following from two key principles: that interpretation is a form of intention recognition; and that intentions are complex informational structures, which specify commitments to… (More)
