What are the above sentences cases of: entailment or presupposition? Please explain thank you
Approved answer (verified by Mister Micawber)
Anonymousso what you are saying is, it is both entailment and presupposition, as i'm aware this is possible for a sentence to be both.Generally speaking:
A presupposition may be contained within a single sentence.
Entailment is a relationship between two sentences.
