Example text

From (2): (2) He1 kissed Oscar2’s mother. where the use of numerals provides a clear formal means of distinguishing occurrences of the same index from those of others, and hence tokens of the same expressions, as opposed to tokens of different ones. From this alone we can conclude that “[Oscar]” and the pronoun in (1) have the same reference. ”) No such conclusion as this follows for (2), however. 13 It only means that there are tokens of distinct syntactic types, just as coindexing means just that there are tokens of the same type.

Thus, not only would the language be compositional, but in a sense so would be our communicative intentions in using that language; there would be constituent intentions of the speakers’ intention to make a statement by uttering a sentence. This sense of intended coreference would be distinct from that described in the previous paragraph, because it would not preclude that (1), for instance, could be grammatical and true if the name and the pronoun are noncoreferential. There seems to us good reason to doubt this picture.

This is the role of context—it must provide information sufficient for closure for what is open in sentences. Thus, fixing the value of the pronoun to be Oscar, the sentence “He left” will say, relative to context, what the sentence “Oscar left” says. ” One way to proceed would be to treat the pronoun in this sentence just like the pronoun in “He left,” as an open indexical. The pronoun would then be evaluated relative to context; this sentence may be used to state, for instance, that Oscar kissed Max’s mother or that Oscar kissed Harry’s mother.
