    Contrast as Denial in Multi-Dimensional Semantics.Jennifer Spenader & Emar Maier - 2009 - Journal of Pragmatics 41:1707-26.
    We argue that contrastive statements have the same underlying semantics and affect the context in the same way as denials. We substantiate this claim by giving a unified account of the two phenomena that treats contrast as a subtype of denial. This analysis crucially requires a dynamic semantics view of context-dependence with a multi-dimensional representation of information.

    Factive Presuppositions, Accommodation and Information Structure.Jennifer Spenader - 2003 - Journal of Logic, Language and Information 12 (3):351-368.
    There are three ways to refer to a fact from the complement of afactive verb: (1) Via abstract object anaphoric reference, or, witha full sentential complement that will be interpreted either (2) asa bound presupposition or (3) as triggering a presupposition of afact that will have to be accommodated. Spoken corpus examplesreveal that these three possibilities differ in relation to thetype of information they tend to contribute, and this has twoeffects. First, the information status of the fact and its role (...)

  4. Contrast as Denial.Emar Maier & Jennifer Spenader - 2004 - In Jonathan Ginzburg & Enric Vallduví (eds.), Proceedings of Catalog'04: The 8th Workshop on the Semantics and Pragmatics of Dialogue.
    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 (...)

  5. Unifying Contrast and Denial.Jennifer Spenader - unknown
    Some apparent differences: (i) Denials are essentially a dialogue phenomenon as is obvious from the fact that (ii) denials taken out of their dialogue context are often plain contradictions (Horn, 1989), and for this reason (iii) their analysis necessarily involves nonmonotonic operations. Contrast on the other hand is (i’) a discourse relation frequently occuring in monologue, (ii’) never involving overt contradictions (*I am hungry but I am not hungry)1 and therefore (iii’) often treated as an essentially monotonic phenomenon: what licenses (...)
