Presuppositional Forms: Negative Questions – Today, when someone presents a simple outcome or limitation (using few enough words that it can be presupposed in a longer sentence. Ex. “being confident” or “making more money”), use the following presuppositional form to presuppose the outcome or to change the limitation into a resource.
“Haven’t you had even one time when you were confident?”
“Weren’t you making less money than you are now in grade school?”
