K. reviews McCawley's belief that selectional restrictions are only aspects of the general phenomenon of presupposition and that selectional features do not exist as syntactic features. The author attempts to formalize some aspects of semantic presupposition within syntax and to reinterpret Chomskyan selectional features as a special type of such rules of presupposition.
