"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).

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.
