ABSTRACT. Quine writes that the indeterminacy thesis tells us that right translations can sharply diverge; the indeterminacy of translation shows that the notion of propositions as sentence meanings is untenable. The notions of synonymy, meaningfulness, analyticity, and entailment are connected in intimate ways. The apparatus of stimulus and response will not vindicate common-sense views about meaning.
