|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._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

|Rorty I 323
Language/Putnam/Rorty: like Wittgenstein and Goodman: language as a reflection of the world, so any non-intentional relationship, is not useful for the explanation of the acquisition and comprehension of language.
Horwich I 457
Language/Putnam: if only noise, then nothing but an expression of our subjectivity. - Instead: Correctness: makes truth the appreciated concept in the inside view of the language game. RortyVsPlaton: but judgmental expressions are not names of esoteric entities.
Putnam III 124
Language/intensional/Davidson: E.g. the new Minister of scientific language has prohibited the use of words that relate to emotions, thoughts, and intentions. - How do we know whether the command has been executed when the officer only speaks the new language? - The new terms coming out of his mouth may play the same role as the old. - Similarly to the use of color predicates._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
