This is just to express my opinion that Steve might be right about
concessives. I am not convinced by his arguments that "If it rains,
it rains hard" is not a conditional, but some "if"s might not
introduce genuine conditionals. I introduced some nonstandard claims
about certain "if"s in a paper on "If"s that appeared years ago in the
first edition of the Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Things I say there
might interest J.L. if he takes a look at the article. My memory of
what I said there is a bit dim, though.
