This chapter analyzes the Gricean legacy in the domain of sentential connectives and proposes a more cognitively plausible account of them in terms of merger representations. For example, conditional perfection of if to ‘if and only if’ is regarded as too strong a rule to capture the process of interpretation of sentences with a conditional. It is argued that sentential connectives do not constitute a self-contained, interesting category as far as their processing is concerned.

Keywords:   conjunction, disjunction, negation, conditional, biconditional, conditional perfection, post-propositional enrichment
