    Page ix - Language is a social art. In acquiring it we have to depend entirely on intersubjectively available cues as to what to say and when. Hence there is no justification for collating linguistic meanings, unless in terms of men's dispositions to respond overtly to socially observable stimulations/5(3). The English ordinary language has ambiguities that need to be clarified as we sometimes refer to an object with a word, e.g., a cat. We refer to the name by using scare quotes, the name of the cat, e.g., the word “cat”. There is ambiguity in the language as regards referring to the cat as a concept, and cat as an object.

: Ambiguities in Intensional Contexts (Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy) (): Frank Heny: Books. The essays in this book deal with a number of problems in the analysis of intensional language - more especially with the analysis of the personal modalities in natural language.

Together they cover a representative spectrum of the problems of contemporary,interest in this area, in a way that should make them of interest to linguists, logicians and philosophers concerned with natural language.

Ambiguities related to intension and their consequent inference failures are a diverse group, both syntactically and semantically. One particular kind of ambiguity that has received little. Intension and extension, in logic, correlative words that indicate the reference of a term or concept: “intension” indicates the internal content of a term or concept that constitutes its formal definition; and “extension” indicates its range of applicability by naming the particular objects that it denotes.

For instance, the intension of “ship” as a substantive is “vehicle for. an intensional (more accurately, non-extensional) context. The main criterion for calling something an intensional context is the “failure of substitutivity of co-extensional expressions.” • Substitution of extensionally equivalent expressions in an intensional context (on the opaque reading) does not always preserve Size: KB.

Subject as a Conflation of Role and Topicality Factors. Les Bruce | pp. 1– Semantic Extension in the Colour Lexicon. The chapter ends with discussion and treatment of scope ambiguities. Chapter 6 is an introduction to intensional semantics, motivated by classic problems of sense versus reference.

After a brief and approachable survey of intensional contexts, a domain of possible worlds (or indices) is addedto our models and individual concepts. Quantificational NPs give rise to scope ambiguities when they interact with other quantifiers, or when they are embedded under intensional verbs.

In these contexts, we find the so-called ‘split’ readings of negative quantifiers. Intensional contexts An indefinite NP gets a specific reading if it takes wide scope over the intensional. Out of that experience grew the introduction that follows.

In contrast with the rest of the book, the introduction is frankly pedagogical. I hope and believe that many who would otherwise find the papers themselves hard to digest will ~e helped on their way by that summary. Ambiguities in Intensional Contexts reduces your potential stress.

Typically a context that is intensional can be recognized by a failure of the substitutivity of equality when naively applied. Thus, the morning star equals the evening star; you know the morning star equals the morning star; then on substituting equals for equals, you know the morning star equals the evening star.

Intensional transitive verbs are also involved in another puzzle of substitution-resistance besides the one already discussed.
