Def Functional Compositional Semantics/Compositionality/Structure/Propositional Attitudes/Cresswell: E.g. - Def Meaning/Functionally Compositional/Cresswell: "5 + 7" is the result of the fact that we let the function that is the meaning of the plus sign "+" (i.e. the operation of addition) operate on the two numbers 5 and 7.
II 27
Compositionality/Cresswell: choosing compositional semantics was motivated by the fact that there is a close connection between meaning and reference.
II 27
Non-Functional Compositional/Semantics/Katz/Cresswell: such a semantics was presented by Katz - but he expects that truth and reference have no place in a semantic theory.
