Asserting Sentence/Assertion/Frege: as equation: has two parts - one is saturated, one is unsaturated - function: the meaning of the unsaturated part: E.g. "conquered Gaul" - Argument: Caesar - (sic without quotation marks) - Quotation Marks/(s): the argument is not put in quotation marks ((s) the person is argument, not the name) - ((s)>Russell: the object itself occurs in the sentence).

Assertion/Assertion/Designating/Frege: with judging stroke: designates nothing! - But asserts something - either assert or designate.
IV 52
Thought/Frege: no complete thought without time determination. - But then it is also timelessly true or false. - Expression/Assertion/Frege: difference: time determination: part of the expression - truth: part of the assertion and timeless - Timeless things do not belong to the outside world.
