Formal speech: expression of R. Carnap (R. Carnap, Scheinprobleme in der Philosophie und andere metaphysikkritische Schriften, Hamburg, 2005 p. 120). In the formal manner of speech it comes to rules on the use of linguistic expressions and to the question of which inferences are allowed in order to build new statements. For example, it's not about whether two expressions mean the same thing, but whether they are mutually substitutable. See also formal language, Content speech, ideal language, artificial language, everyday language.
