Review of the logic of conventional implicatures by Chris Potts [Book Review]

Linguistics and Philosophy 30 (6):707-749 (2007)
Abstract
We review Potts' influential book on the semantics of conventional implicature , offering an explication of his technical apparatus and drawing out the proposal's implications, focusing on the class of CIs he calls supplements. While we applaud many facets of this work, we argue that careful considerations of the pragmatics of CIs will be required in order to yield an empirically and explanatorily adequate account
