This paper offers a model treating conditional sentences as expressions of truth-functional propositions and as such being consistent with the broader Gricean framework. I show the inadequacy of the model (and hence some of the framework) to account for a large variety of naturally occurring examples. The paper proposes an alternative theory whereby conditionals do not express propositions, but rather reveal judgments about the future.
