Conventions II 257
Convention/StrawsonVsAustin: does not create truth: Relation between the Prime Minister and the expression "the Prime Minister" is conventional, but those who use the expression speak no truth without the context - II 260 VsAustin: confuses semantic conditions with what was stated - II 268 E.g. the fact that a statement is exaggerated does not depend on a convention, but on a difference to a fact - II 269 existential statements and limited general statements do not make use of conventions
II 257
Truthmaker/Strawson: E.g. language with "plate" (Wittgenstein, PU) would be just as conventional, but those alleged pseudo-entities that make statements true (facts), would not be among the non-linguistic correlates - (s) but the world would be more empty because of it
