Subordinate clause, philosophy: Subordinate clauses lack the property of complete statement sentences to be true or false. They can be classified according to whether they correspond to general or singular terms, by contributing to a specification of the objects to which the sentence refers to and to which they belong as subsets. See also truth values, interpretation, relative clauses, conditionals, premises.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.

Subordinate Clause/Subsentence/Meaning/Truth Value/tr.val./Frege: E.g. Bebel beleived that the return of Alsace-Lorraine will appease the feeling of vengeance of France. - Here, two ideas are implicit: 1) That Bebel believes that. - 2) That it is wrong - first meaning: a thought. - Second meaning: a truth value -Therefore, the subordinate clause is actually to be taken twice. - Since the truth value is not the whole meaning, we cannot just replace it. - Similar: E.g. knowledge, recognition, "it is known".
II 63
Subordinate Clauses/Subordinate Clause/Frege: E.g. false belief implies two meanings: a thought and a truth value. - Similar: propositional attitudes.
IV 69
Description/Subordinate Clause/Subsentence/Name/Frege: E.g. "The negation of the idea that 3 is greater than 5". - Here, this term refers to a specific individual thing. - This individual thing is a thought - the definite article turns the whole expression into a single name, a representative of a proper name.
