That-clause/Field: does not require a literal representation - e.g. "that snow is white" can be expressed in every language - speech-independent - then a language (Ms) with ""p" means that p" is a special case of the language (M) with ""e" (whereby e is a subsentential expression and means, for example, "dog." That is, "<>" is a formal representation of our normal means of meaning attribution - ((s) the expression in angle brackets is our own) - Scheme characters: "p" and "e" here in relation to an individual, i.e. idiolect.
Then "that p as I understand it now" must not be a literal representation. - angle bracket: it cannot be shown that "metacompact" does not mean
that it means the same as "rabbit" as I understand it in the actual moment. - ((s) In the actual world, in my idiolect).
Angle brackets: for sentences, we can also assume that-clauses.
Understanding: For example, if I do not understand "grug", I will not accept the following: "grug" means
