Abstract

Beaver and Clark (2008) recently argued that only does not presuppose the proposition in its scope, contrary to the 'standard' theory articulated by Horn (1969). Their rejection of the standard theory is partially based on results of a survey test. We present new experimental evidence challenging Beaver and Clark's interpretation of this survey test and suggesting that dropping the standard theory altogether might be too radical a move
