Disquotationalism: a variant of the theory of truth that is inspired by Tarski's definition of truth and believes that the two sides of the T-scheme must be taken from the same language, e.g. "Snow is white" is true if and only if snow is white. See also homophony, homophone truth conditions, truth theory, Tarski, assertibility conditions.
