|Vocabulary: A language’s vocabulary comprises all the words currently used by its speakers. The vocabulary is written down in dictionaries in comparison to grammar and syntax rules laid down in “rule books”. Vocabulary can be reduced to its use at a particular time or by individual speakers for the purpose of research. See also idiolect, language, private language, conservatism, words, meaning of a word, meaning. _____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Definition/Quine: can serve opposite purposes: abbreviation - or more economical vocabulary. (Then longer chains).
Vocabulary/Quine: is divided into two types: lexicon and particles. - Logical particles/Quine: E.g. tilde (produces negation) (point (creates conjunction), hyphon (generates more variables), existential quantifier E, parenthesis - in the lexicon: expressions that are divided into categories (categorematic). - particles: syncategorematic: not in categories, not independent.
Substitutional quantification/sQ/Quine: Here are the variable placeholders for words of any syntactic categories (except names). - Important argument: then there is no possibility to separate names from the rest of the vocabulary and real referential variables.
To be distinguished from others (indistinguishability). - ((s) Does that mean that one cannot distinguish fragments such as object and greater than, and that structures such "there is a greater than" would be possible?_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side. ((s)…): Comment by the sender of the contribution.
