|MEANING AND CONVENTIONS OF LANGUAGE|
|Written by MADALINA NICOLOF|
ABSTRACT. Kripke notes that such semantical notions as "grounded", "paradoxical", etc. belong to the metalanguage. Quine remarks that it is obvious that truth in general depends on both language and extralinguistic fact. Russell asserts that in an elementary proposition we can distinguish one or more terms from one or more concepts. Davidson says that we have the idea of belief only from the role of belief in the interpretation of language, for as a private attitude it is not intelligible except as an adjustment to the public norm provided by language.
