Abstract
I argue that conventional implicatures embed in logical compounds, and are non-truth-conditional contributors to sentence meaning. This, I argue has significant implications for how we understand truth, truth-conditional content, and truth-bearers.
Keywords conventional implicature  truth-aptness  propositions  logical compounds  minimalism about truth  said-content  unsaid-content  truth  semantic content
