Wiki Version:
We propose an analysis of exclusive particles that have a second function as sentential connectors, focusing in this abstract on English 'only'. The exclusive function of such particles is standardly treated as a focus-sensitive quantificational operator. This paper addresses how to extend the analysis to cases where only is used as a sentential connective. We rely on an argumentative framework, and argue that the connective use is derived from the exclusive one by a process of semantic bleaching.
