Truth-conditional semantics: truth-conditional semantics assume that the meaning of sentences can be determined by determining their truth value ("true" or "false"). It is assumed that the sentence components contribute to the meaning of the entire sentence, and the links ("and", "or", etc.) have the meaning which results from the logical truth tables. An example for a non-truth-conditional semantics is the conditional role semantics. See also compositionality, Frege-Principle, truth values, analyticity/syntheticity, understanding, semantics.

Truth-conditional Semantics / Stalnaker: more than mere distinction between true and false sentences. - Practice of claiming. - Instead of an explanation of the reference -. therefore we need a notion of content. - Truth is not sufficient. - Content: more than ascription of truth values. - Communication, information. - Problem: if in an area all sentences are necessarily t / f, it is not clear how we should represent the content.
