Context, context dependency: sentences, words and texts depend to a varying extent on the addition of additional information to eliminate ambiguities. In particular, the use of index words such as "here", "now", but also of pronouns like "mine" leads to indeterminacy of the reference. The additional information may possibly be taken from an already existing information set, whereby the sentences to be examined, words or texts, form a subset of this more comprehensive set. Such a more comprehensive amount of information already existing elsewhere is called context. See also dependency, ambiguity, indeterminacy, discovery.

Contextual Intension/Chalmers: (Chalmers 2003, ยง3).
LewisVsChalmers: the falsity of a sentence where no one says anything comes from compositional rules; situations do not always have to be utterance contexts. Therefore, truth conditions are not "contextual intensions. (Lewis, 1980a, 28f).
