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.

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.
