Object language, philosophy: The object language is the language in which something is said or written in a situation. In contrast, comments and evaluations of what is said or written are invariably written in a metalanguage when the original utterance is mentioned or quoted in it. Metalanguage is thus language about language. Object language is used to mention objects, metalanguage is used to mention linguistic ways of expression. See also metalanguage, mention, use, quotation.
