Intuitively there is no connection between antecedent and consequent. I argue that the standard formalization of independence is insuf- ficient. This is shown with the phenomenon of factual uses of conditionals where the antecedent is mutually accepted by discourse participants. The standard account is amended with a framework which represents dependencies between facts and ‘grounds’ the standard formalization in the independence of facts.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Laws for biscuits : Independence and dependence in conditionals</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
