Context/Context Dependence I 108
Context dependency/context/compositionality/Frege principle/Hintikka: Problem: Context dependency violates the Frege principle. ((s) The meaning of a sentence can change then, although no component changes.)
Any/every/he/a/Hintikka: bad solution: (16) analyze as
(20) John does not believe Mary likes him.
Problem: (16) says that it is compatible with John's beliefs that Mary does not love one while
(20) is compatible with the fact that John does not believe Mary likes him (John). This is then compatible with the fallacy of (17).
I 109
Any/context dependency/context/Hintikka: what we need is an explanation of how the interpretation of "any x" depends on the context.
I 109
Frege principle/compositionality/Hintikka: if we proceed from the outside to the inside, we can allow that the Frege principle is violated. (i.e. the semantic role of the constituents in the interior is context-dependent).
I 110
HintikkaVsFrege/HintikkaVsCompositionality: Thesis: Meanings (meaning entities) should not be produced step by step from simpler in tandem with syntactic rules. They should instead be used as rules of semantic analysis.
