AbstractThis paper is about conjunctions and disjunctions in the scope of non-doxastic atti- tude verbs. These constructions generate a certain type of ignorance implicature. I argue that the best way to account for these implicatures is by appealing to a notion of contex- tual redundancy (Schlenker, 2008; Fox, 2008; Mayr and Romoli, 2016). This pragmatic approach to ignorance implicatures is contrasted with a semantic account of disjunctions under `wonder' that appeals to exhaustication (Roelofsen and Uegaki, 2016). I argue that exhaustication-based theories cannot handle embedded conjunctions, so a pragmatic account of ignorance implicatures is superior.
