ABSTRACT. Quine's behaviourism requires the linguist's theoretical constructions to be justified on the basis of objective evidence. The available paradigms in the case of definition either assume prior synonymy relations or else have nothing to do with meaning. No comparison between hypotheses about beliefs and hypotheses about meaning is possible (it assumes an analytic/synthetic distinction).
