Theory of denotation/Formal Languages​/Fodor: Theory of denotation of the formal semantics does not reflect denotation in the specific language properly. Therefore, the real problems do not appear in the formal languages​​. - Designation theory: in two parts: 1) a set of rules specifies the designates for the individual constants and predicates in the vocabulary. - 2) A second set determines the concept true in L for the sentences by a recursive. - In this second set there is usually a rule that defines a necessary and sufficient condition for the truth of every elementary sentence. (Snow is white...). - Denotation/Fodor: cannot grasp the problems of denotation in natural languages. - E.g. - "I want to be Pope" does not refer to the Pope. - E.g. - "I would like to meet the Pope": refers to the Pope. - E.g. -the checkered dress: can refer to the darker dress.
