Utterances/Modification/Austin/Principle: No modification without deviation!
HungerlandVsAustin: there is another sense of "normal". E.g "I sit quite normally in the chair". Here I cannot say that I was sitting intentionally in the chair, or that I was sitting unintentionally in the chair.´
HungerlandVsAustin: We use modifiers when there is a reason to summon a norm, a benchmark, a scale.
For example, a clergyman who is not a clergyman because he is a swindler is not a special kind of clergyman, he is not a clergyman at all.
