K. distinguishes between a semantic and a pragmatic type of functional sentence perspective. On the semantic level we find the notions of 'psychological subject' and 'psychological predicate', whereas the notions of 'given' and 'new' information belong to the pragmatic level. Only the semantic type of functional sentence perspective is relevant to semantic presuppositions.
