This reply addresses Ronny Boogaart’s comments on our contribution Temporaliteit en modaliteit. A general problem with these comments is that Boogaart does not seem to appreciate that we make a strict distinction between semantics (the meaning of the sentence) and pragmatics (the use of the sentence in a given context). The former determines the situations in which a given sentence is true, whereas the latter determines a subset of these situations that are ‘intended’ by the speaker. The central role we attribute to pragmatics in determining the actual location of the eventuality in the relevant present/past tense domain immediately refutes RB’s claim that we do not explicitly refer to contextual factors.
