TCP is the view that the effects of context on truth-conditional content need not be traceable to the linguistic material in the uttered sentence.

1. This underdeterminacy is at the core of Carston’s work, and it is in the search for solutions to the problems it raises that her main contribution arises. There are two other linguistic underdeterminacy theses, which are much less controversial (Carston 2002: 19): (i) linguistic meaning underdetermines what is meant, and (ii) what is said (explicit utterance content) underdetermines what is meant. In this introduction, we will use the term ‘underdeterminacy’ in the more restricted sense of linguistic or semantic underdeterminacy of what is said (or explicature).
