Author Item Summary Meta data
VII (f) 112
Quotes/Quine: square quotation marks: notation [] only upper half: is an expression marked as a noun m- variables are nouns if they occupy the place of names of sentences (Greek letters). See also Quote/Disquotation, Second Intention.
X 33
Quotation Marks/Quine: it depends on them whether we are talking about words or the world.
Quotation Marks/Quine: create the name of a sentence containing a name of snow, namely "snow".
Truth-Predicate/Quine: by calling the sentence true, we call the snow white.
Truth-Predicate: cancels the quotes.
Sentence: we can say it simply by pronouncing it. Therefore we can dispense with quotation marks and truth-predicates.
Truth-Predicate/Quine: we need it if we want to claim an infinite set of sentences that we can only define by talking about the sentences. Example: "All sentences of the form 'p or not p' are true". We need it to restore the reference to an object when we have used semantic ascension for generalization. >Truth Predicate/Quine
Quotation Marks/Quine: the Tarski example cannot be generalized as follows:

p' is true iff p

because if you write the schema letter 'p' in quotation marks, you get the name of the 16th letter of the alphabet and not a general expression for sentences.
III 67
Quotation Marks/Quine: form names (designations) e.g. we write "lies close to" not between Mannheim and Heidelberg, but between their designations (names).
III 68
Rhyme/Quine: "Erden" (earth) rhymes with "werden" (become). Without quotation marks it would not only be wrong but ungrammatic and pointless. See also >Implication/Quine, >Conditional/Quine, >Mention/Quine, >Use.
