However, when considering their counterfactual versions, the two forms differ in the verbal morphological make-up of the consequent clause, which posits a challenge to the unified approach. The present papers develops an analysis of tense and mood morphology within the unified approach where the key idea is that counterfactuals biscuits involve breaking Sequence of Tense and so-called Sequence of Mood. Unacceptable biscuit and hypothetical forms are ruled out via pragmatic competition between weaker and stronger forms and via the Gricean Principle of Manner.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2019-12-09</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-12-19T10:09:21Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Counterfactual biscuit conditionals : a temporal remoteness Approach</dcterms:title> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2019-12-19T10:09:21Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Romero, Maribel</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Csipak, Eva</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
