This chapter is devoted to the discussion of the token-reflexive approach to indexicality, and to further related themes, including the analysis of approximations and the discussion of the so-called puzzle of addressing. Its main conclusion is that token-reflexivity provides an incorrect analysis of indexicality, and that it yields unsatisfactory logical conclusions.

Keywords: token-reflexivity; indexicality; approximation; puzzle of addressing
