Designation of sentences/truth/Carnap/Geach: E.g. DES (German) "rot" is red, DES (French) "l" eau "is water, etc. - For all x, x is true in L ↔ DES (L) x. - This gives us a definition of "true in L" in terms of "designation in L". If it is grammatically not a complete sentence, it is nevertheless in the logical sense - it means roughly: ""mon crayon est noir" is true in French." - Because "DES(English) "Chicago is a large city" is a complete sentence, "DES(English) is not a relation sign! We cannot ask: "What is it what it signifies" as we cannot ask, "What is it that it rains?".
