Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Quote/Disquotation: quotes are reproductions of verbal or written utterances made or found at a different time and / or at a different place. They may be put forward verbally or in writing. Problems arise for the interpretation of the original utterance if it contains linguistic elements that refer to persons or situations in the utterance context. See also indirect speech, quasi-quotation, intensions, propositions, opacity, two-dimensional semantics.

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.

Quote/Quine: any nonsense can appear as a quote within normal language - problem: then it is part of the normal sentence - then no longer possible to exclude it from the set of meaningful strings - solution: a) narrow the term normality b) narrow the term appear - problem: we have an interest in not limiting the strings on the already known.

Quote/Quine: does not necessarily destroy reference: E.g. "Giorgione" appoints a chess player (is true when he played chess).
