Interpretation: A) making statements about other statements, whereby the new statements of the vocabulary make use of the original statements and possibly introduce new vocabulary. If no new vocabulary is introduced, new information can be obtained by changing the syntactic elements.
B) In logic, the insertion of values (objects) instead of the constants or free variables.

Interpretive meaning theory/interpreted/Davidson: 1. You must know what is determined and relativized to expressions by an extensional finite Tarskian truth theory - 2. conscience empirical conditions are satisfied (usually principle of charity) - 3. We would know that 1. and 2. exist - only counterfactual conditional: "what would be the case ..." - otherwise not realistic for any actual speaker - problem: no Tarskian theory for natural languages - strange feature/Schiffer: that there then has to be a content-determining property, which is not known by any speaker - solution: it is in the non-propositional or subdoxastic knowledge - it is in any case "represented internally" - Schiffer: this is not a mistake of Davidson.
