Contrast as denial
In Jonathan Ginzburg & Enric Vallduví (eds.), Proceedings of Catalog'04: The 8th Workshop on the Semantics and Pragmatics of Dialogue (2004)
We present a unified treatment of contrast and denial as slightly different instantiations of the same discourse schema. Both denial and contrast are analysed as involving a revision operation, what sets them apart is merely the type of information being retracted. The formal analysis requires a representational framework that separates different types of information and is therefore implemented in Layered DRT. One of our selling points is the account of the uses of rectification vs. contrastive particles (like German sondern/aber) we get for free with our unification.
