N. argues that, though all presuppositions have to be described as conversational implicatures in context, in the description in a grammar a distinction has to be made between the factive presuppositions of cognitive predicates (e.g. know, realize) and those of non-cognitive predicates (e.g. regret). He claims that the latter are purely logical presuppositions, whereas the former are speaker presuppositions.
