So-called ?Exhaustive Conditionals? (ECs, also known as ?Unconditionals?) have been an important focus of recent research. We develop an HPSG analysis of governed ECs (e.g. ?no matter how intelligent the students are...?), sketch an approach to ungoverned ECs (e.g. ?however intelligent the students are...?), and evaluate three possible analyses of reduced ECs (e.g. ?no matter how intelligent the students...?, ?however intelligent the students...?)
