To apply such a rule we need to know, for each expression to which it applies, the component-structure of that expression. Theories that employ principles of compositionality nearly always exploit a recursive model of syntax for the expressions considered. Any complex expression, including a sentence, is composed from simpler expressionsits immediate constituentsby a formation rule. Here is an example of such a rule: Formation Rule for Unary Predications: If t is a (simple or complex) singular term and y is a (simple or complex) unary predicate, then the expression obtained by adjoining t and y is a sentence.
The only remaining consideration in favor of the naïve analysis is its status as "the best game in town": no non-naïve, well-detailed strategy for analyzing belief reports has been given that has so few unacceptable consequences. This evidence supports the inductive conclusion that non-naïve semantics is doomed to failure. This, surely, is the reason that so many philosophers have been willing to adopt a view with the obvious embarrassments of the naïve semantics. The only truly persuasive argument against such a view is not an argument at allwhat is needed is a better analysis of belief reporting.
3 Implicature and Cancelability Next I want to look at the claim that the presence in belief reports of a certain symptom of pragmatic implicature, namely cancelability of "extra" information, counts as a feather in the cap of the naïve analysis. To do this, I need first to sketch the theoretical framework in which the notion of cancelability figures. Communication involves a speaker intentionally bringing about changes in the hearer's beliefs. Much of our interest in semantics is grounded in the assumption that a central sort of communication involves statements in which what is expressed is a big part of what is communicated.
