|Assertion: a statement that goes beyond mere writing down of a sentence or a string of characters. By the assertion the subject is commited to certain other claims. See also score keeping, inferences, speech acts, statements._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Assertions/Statement/Habermas: for a sentence like "This ball is red" there is no meaning-preserving sentence in a non-assertoric mode. There is an asymmetry: the semantic content of any illocutionary or expressive part of a speech act can be expressed by a descriptive sentence - but not by sentences of another mode.
This asymmetry explains why we learn the linguistic expressions that are constitutive for illocutionary or expressive elements in such a way that we can use them simultaneously in the attitudes of the first and third person. _____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
