Introduction: The Frege Model and Beyond

Show Summary Details


I identify the Frege model as the cluster of views affirming the sense/force distinction, compositional truth-conditional semantics, and quantification theory as a necessary component in any analysis of generality in a natural language. I outline a theory that rejects all three elements of the Frege model. This is the STA approach.

Keywords: advertising; complex; defence; expressive assertion; grammar; logical form; pragmatic theory of truth; quantification; reportive assertion; semantic theory of truth
