Re-examining L. Karttunen's (1973: 'Presuppositions of compound sentences') filtering conditions for 'and', R. maintains (i) that there is no filtering asymmetry between the conjuncts of a coordinate structure, and (ii) that it is sometimes not sufficient and sometimes not necessary that C, in order to be filtered out, stands to the relevant conjunct in the relation of semantic entailment.
