Intensional language/extensional/Lewis: the difference is so hard to grasp that it hardly makes a difference which we use. - Greater difference: if a language can be formally analyzed or not. - Ontology: for it, it is only important whether suspect entities have to be assumed - which does not coincide with the difference internal/external.
