This article aims at showing that the special interpretations of asymmetrical coordinate structures result from an interplay between the syntactico-semantic output of the grammar and pragmatics, but that they do not necessitate the introduction of special syntactico-semantic means; standard assumptions about syntax, semantics and pragmatics suffice for providing an adequate description of the core data.
