Language I 238
Language/Brandom: linguistic skills consist of reliable disposition to respond differently to stimuli - more is not necessary.

I 648
You cannot describe a language coherently in which expressions are used demonstratively, but not pronominally. (vice versa it is possible).

I 519
Language/Infinite/Brandom: if there are correct and incorrect uses of phrases that are formed for the first time, there must be some kind of extrapolation - Substitution: if two sentences are substitutional variants, then they are applications of the same function.

I 545
Language/Richness/Expressiveness/Brandom: if the language is expressively rich, there must be no asymetrical SMSICs for substitutable expressions (singular terms). This would mean that (Vs): for every sentential frame Pa, whenever the interence from Pt to Pt" is correct, but not vice versa, there was a sentence frame P"a in a way that the inference from P"t" to P"t was correct, but not vice versa! It would be impossible to codify inferences in such a language.

I 815
Language/Brandom: There are not so many words - the language would be poor if they all had the same meaning in the mouths of different speakers - speakers who do not accept the same definition cannot assign every assertion de dicto - E.g. "that scoundrel".
