This chapter discusses the nature of word-meaning. During the course of the discussion, four very important questions arise. The first question is about the true definition of word-meanings, the second is how word-meanings are properly understood, and the third is about the meaning behind sharing word meanings. The fourth and final question that is posed in this chapter is about how these word meanings relate to what they are meanings of.
