Abstract
The Gricean approach explains implicatures by assumptions about the
pragmatics of entire utterances. The phenomenon of embedded implicatures
remains a challenge for this approach since in such cases apparently
implicatures contribute to the truth-conditional content of constituents smaller
than utterances. In this paper, I investigate three areas where embedded
implicatures seem to differ from implicatures at the utterance level: optionality,
epistemic status, and implicated presuppositions. I conclude that the differences
between the two kinds of implicatures justify an approach that maintains
Gricean assumptions at the utterance level, and assumes a special operator for
embedded implicatures.
