Research into aphasia reveals new interactions between language and thought




Knowledge of the facts is called factive knowledge. In the phrase “He knows [that it is warm outside]”, the embedded clause is assumed to be true. However, in the phrase “It seems [that it is warm outside]”, the embedded clause is presupposed to be false or counterfactive. Such constructions communicate an individual’s mental states and the reliability of the information they provide, and involves a complex process at various cognitive levels of language and thought on which there is controversy as to how these different levels of meaning work.
