|Semantic facts, philosophy: whether semantic facts are accepted within a theory depends on the orientation of this theory. That is, it depends on whether the theory is concerned with the use of language or with a more or less physical description of external objects. In the latter case, semantic facts should not be decisive. See also facts, truth maker, semantics._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Truth/foreign language/multilingual/Field: problem: whether a foreign utterance is true depends on semantic facts, but whether a sentence of one s native language is true, does not depend on it. - Reason: because we must regard it then as "is synonymous with the corresponding sentence of their own language".
Semantic fact/Field/(s): E.g. "the senence S is synonymous with the sentence P"._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
