|Property: what can be ascribed to an object in order to distinguish it from other objects. In philosophy, there is debate about whether properties exist or whether "bare particulars" exist. Expressions for properties are predicates. Not every predicate will refer to a property. See also quantification over properties, 2nd order logic, HOL, completeness.|

Properties/Dummett: can be weakly or strongly objective:
Def weakly objective: "not dependent on individuals" - intersubjective
Def strongly objective: not dependent on anyone - but no existence.
The child has no idea of objectivity in the strong sense. The concept of color as objective in the weak sense is no guarantee that it is also objective in the strong sense: it could be that it is similar to the case of "interesting". Ex: it is not an essential property of "taste" that apart from the reactions of humans and animals who take a sample in their mouth there are other means to determine whether it is sweet.
Names/Meaning/logical constants/Dummett: if each attribute can be omitted without the name of the bearer being robbed, that does not mean that the sense remains the same - You can generalize this for all words except the logical constants and prepositions.
