Denotation Put II 96
E.g. a villager in Thailand knows no cats except Siamese. His perception prototype for "miu" is not our perception prototype for "normal house cat" but our perception prototype for "Siamese".
Nevertheless, the correct translation for "miu" is not Siamese but cat! ("miu" means all cats, not merely resembling the Thai prototype.)
