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 22.214.171.124 (talk) 11:21, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
