Quasi-Quotation I 206
Quasi-quotation marks/Quine: (half-square brackets): lets for all x[x] and x be the same - e.g. "[la.b]" for the same values of "a" and "b" the same object-language expression as above - Geach variant: E.g. for [Cicero] and [Cicero was more honest than Demosthenes] would simply be the terms "Cicero" and "Cicero was more honest than Demosthenes" - then "x" is a mere variable and not a proper name, but [x] is a proper name. - correct: for an x, x was a great orator, and [x] is the only proper name of a Roman, which occured in [x was more honest than Demosthenes] - quasi-quotation: but is not a name.
