|Abstract||I compare Potts’ use of a ‘‘judge’’ parameter in semantic interpretation with the use of a similar parameter in Lasersohn (2005). The latter technique portrays the content of expressives as constant across speakers, while Pott’s technique does not. The idea that the content of expressives is a kind of presupposition is also brieﬂy defended, and a technical problem in the ‘‘dynamics’’ of Pott’s formalism is pointed out.|
