In this paper I show that this content-sensitivity is pragmatically motivated, independent of NPI licensing: minimizers are licensed in all types of conditionals. However, in most contexts it is not in the speaker’s best interest (and therefore irrational) to use a minimizer when making a promise, rendering such promises odd.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2018-12-03T15:40:38Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Csipak, Eva</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
