Understanding: the ability to give reasons for a distinction or to justify a selection of options. For the understanding of signs and words plays a role, whether one can connect an object with the word or sign, as well as whether one can replace the sign or word with another sign or word. In order to understand full sentences, the context must be grasped as well. A point of contention is whether knowing the truth conditions gives the sentence its meaning. In other words Whether there is the knowledge about what should be if the sentence were true. If that is correct, there is no need to know whether the sentence is true (cf. M. Dummett, Ursprünge der analytischen Philosophie Frankfurt 1992, p. 20). See also substitution, truth conditions, knowledge.

Understanding/Cavell: I guess, only if nothing is implied, understanding can be guaranteed.
Formal logic cannot be presented as a guarantor of understanding, but as its substitute. (Compare Quine: "Mr. Strawson on Logical Theory").
Cavell: where understanding is necessary, there can be misunderstanding.
