Many theories of presupposition fail to account for the pragmatic nature
of presuppositional justification. An alternative account will be presented
in which accommodation is essentially non­structural: the material
to be accommodated cannot be predicted purely by consideration of the
form of the utterance, but instead makes essential use of world­knowledge
and common­sense reasoning. The account will essentially consist of the
extension of (a reformulated version of) the Context Change Potential
(CCP) model due to Heim, Karttunen and Stalnaker, with a pragmatic module.
