ABSTRACT. Quine claims that even if he had a satisfactory notion of shared content, he would not want to improve it in a positivist spirit as a condition of meaningfulness. Quine oulines the crucial role played by the grammatical particles in our understanding of language. Quine defines stimulus-meaning in terms of the class of stimulations that would prompt a speaker's assent to or dissent from a given sentence at a given date.
