Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

 
Language, philosophy: language is a set of phonetic or written coded forms fixed at a time for the exchange of information or distinctions within a community whose members are able to recognize and interpret these forms as signs or symbols. In a wider sense, language is also a sign system, which can be processed by machines. See also communication, language rules, meaning, meaning change, information, signs, symbols, words, sentences, syntax, semantics, grammar, pragmatics, translation, interpretation, radical interpretation, indeterminacy.

Language/Brandom: linguistic skills consist of reliable disposition to respond differently to stimuli - more is not necessary.

I 648
You cannot describe a language coherently in which expressions are used demonstratively, but not pronominally. (vice versa it is possible).
---
I 519
Language/Infinite/Brandom: if there are correct and incorrect uses of phrases that are formed for the first time, there must be some kind of extrapolation - Substitution: if two sentences are substitutional variants, then they are applications of the same function.
---
I 545
Language/Richness/Expressiveness/Brandom: if the language is expressively rich, there must be no asymetrical SMSICs for substitutable expressions (singular terms). This would mean that (Vs): for every sentential frame Pa, whenever the interence from Pt to Pt" is correct, but not vice versa, there was a sentence frame P"a in a way that the inference from P"t" to P"t was correct, but not vice versa! It would be impossible to codify inferences in such a language.

Language/Brandom: There are not so many words - the language would be poor if they all had the same meaning in the mouths of different speakers - speakers who do not accept the same definition cannot assign every assertion de dicto - E.g. "that scoundrel".
