What these topics have in common is that one cannot explain the meaning—not even the logical properties—of the expressions concerned without explaining how they affect people’s expectations. This can best be done in a framework in which the meaning of a sentence is not equated with its truth conditions but with its (potential) impact on the intentional state of an addressee.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Karawani, Hadil</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-05-28T11:59:24Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Crespo, Inés</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Karawani, Hadil</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Veltman, Frank</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Veltman, Frank</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-05-28T11:59:24Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2018</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
