Paratactic analysis, philosophy: the attempt to analyze a compound sentence by juxtaposing the complete sentences derived from it. E.g. the earth rotates. Galileo said that. With this, problems with the attribution of propositional attitudes or indirect speech should be avoided. See also propositions, propositional attitudes, quotation, opacity, all that he said is true.

3. essential relation of "equal speech" - problem: the substitution in the range of "that" does not preserve the truth value of the entire attribution. - Solution: the sentence-tokening located within, is not part of the actual attribution. - BrandomVsDavidson: the relation between the two Tokenings should be an anaphor and not demonstrative. - e.g. Galileo said (something in his mouth that commited him on that, what an assertive utterance of the following in my mouth would now commit me to).
