Processing Not-At-Issue (NAI) content

NAI content influencesjudgments about a sentence differently than At Issue content does. NAI content will be analyzed as contributing a quasi-independent speech act from the speech act of the containing utterance. Experimental evidence will be presented in support of this view.
