Even though as even if

  • Hanzhi Zhu

Abstract

In this paper, I propose a new semantics for although/even though. My proposal makes use of the scalar likelihood presupposition of even, and I argue that the concessivity of although comes from scalar likelihood comparison of two conditional propositions. I present both formal and empirical advantages of such an account.
