초록 Choi, Youngju & Joh, Yoon-kyoung. (2016). Speech Act Metonymy in Biscuit Conditionals. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal, 24(4), 81-102. Biscuit conditionals are distinguished from indicative conditionals in that their consequent clauses are not dependent on conditional clauses while they are in indicative conditionals. In the example of the biscuit conditionals, If you are hungry, there are biscuits on the sideboard, it is apparent that the existence of biscuits on the sideboard does not depend on one's hunger. This paper demonstrates that the conditional clause is metonymically interpreted as the question where can I find food? and the consequent clause as the answer there are biscuits on the sideboard. Then the conditional will be construed as If your question is, where can I find food, then my answer to you is, there are biscuits on the sideboard, leading to the conclusion that biscuit conditionals behave like indicative conditionals, with their consequent clauses having dependency on their conditional clauses: If the question is not "where can I find food?" the answer will not be "there are biscuits on the sideboard. How the conditional and consequent clauses of biscuit conditionals are interpreted as question-answer pairs will be explained based on speech act metonymy.
