Presuppositional Forms: Spurious “Not” – 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.
“I wonder if you’re not already able to be confident.”
“I wonder if you’re not already learning to make more money.”
