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.

Crispin Wright on Quote/Disquotation - Dictionary of Arguments

Horwich I 110
Horwich: "Snow is white" is true because snow is white.
WrightVsHorwich: this is not a sentence about truth, but a sentence about physical laws, laws of nature, and it does not help us here.

Wright I 85
Tarski/Disquotation scheme/semantic definition of truth, disquotation: it is well known that it is incompatible with it, to accept a failure of bivalence (true/false).
  E.g. if "P" is neither true nor false, then the assertion that "P" is true will be probably wrong and its biconditional probably incorrect.
Disquotation scheme (DS): is the producer platitude for all other: thus correspondence, negation, distinction between truth and assertibility.
  It itself is neutral in terms of stability and absoluteness.

Wright I 27 ~
Disquotation/Tarski/Wright: one does not need to understand the content.
---
I 33
The disquotation scheme does not exclude that there will be a divergence in the extension: the aiming on an object with the property F does not need not be the aiming on a property with G - they only coincide normatively in relation to practice.
