Is an agent a word or a referent?[edit]

In the introduction we have "Jack is the agent" with "Jack" in italics. Because of the fact that we use italics for text units citation not noticing denotata themselves, I think this italicisation shows that an agent is to be A WORD not a denotatum.

Is an agent a word or a denotatum?

If it's a denotatum, the italicisation must be put out. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.118.66.79 (talk) 11:21, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
