Abstract

At the beginning of Chapter 4, I observed that, given the right context, an even-if utterance, such as (1) or (2), can receive an interpretation similar to that of the but utterance in (3) or the although utterances in (4) and (5):
  1. (1)

    Even if it’s raining, Peter will go out.

     
  2. (2)

    Peter will go out, even if it’s raining.

     
  3. (3)

    It was raining but Peter went out.

     
  4. (4)

    Although it was raining, Peter went out.

     
  5. (5)

    Peter went out although it was raining.
