ΓΙΑ ΤΗ ΛΕΞΗ…

Any given sentence is taken to express two distinct propositions, often referred to as a primary intension and a secondary intension, which together compose its meaning.[for a fuller explanation see Chalmers, David. The Conscious Mind. Oxford UP: 1996. Chapter 2, section 4]

Η ΠΡΩΤΑΡΧΙΚΗ INTENSION ΜΙΑΣ ΛΕΞΗΣ ΕΙΝΑΙ Η ΣΗΜΑΣΙΑ ΤΗΣ, δηλ., ΕΙΝΑΙ Η ΙΔΕΑ Ή Η ΜΕΘΟΔΟΣ ΜΕ ΤΗΝ ΟΠΟΙΑ ΒΡΙΣΚΟΥΜΕ ΤΟ ΑΝΑΦΕΡΟΜΕΝΟ ΤΗΣ.

(The primary intension of a word or sentence is its sense, i.e., is the idea or method by which we find its referent.)

Η ΔΕΥΤΕΡΕΥΟΥΣΑ INTENSION ΤΗΣ ΛΕΞΗΣ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΤΟ ΙΔΙΟ ΤΟ ΚΟΣΜΙΚΟ ΑΝΑΦΕΡΟΜΕΝΟ.
 
(The secondary intension of “water” is whatever thing “water” happens to pick out in this world, whatever that world happens to be.)
