|Meaning: Differs from the reference object (reference). The object does not have to exist for an expression to have a meaning. Words are not related to objects in a one-to-one correspondence. There is an important distinction between word meaning and sentence meaning. See also use theory, sentence meaning, reference, truth.|

Meaning / idea / PerryVsFrege: we must separate sharply meaning and thoughts - the thought is not a mental entity, but corresponds to the informational content - the meaning corresponds to the role of words - the same role creates another de re-proposition in any context.
