Welcome to Denotation![edit]

Hi,

If anyone has any problems or queries about Denotation, please feel free to add a message here!

My problem is that it's not as awesome as detonation. --Lenoxus 01:53, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

I don't even know where to start, this page is simply awful. For instance, in the wildly unhelpful picture section, why doesn't the brown cross image denote a representation of a brown cross like the example of the heart? There is no sensible reason why there would be a difference. And what the heck does the sentence 'In logic and semantics, denotational always attracts the extension meaning "in the pair", but the other element genuinely varies' mean? I think I am being charitable by even calling it a sentence. Since I came to the page looking for information on the contrast between denotation and reference I can't help give you a better understanding of them, but this page needs to be put under review or something. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.200.117.209 (talk) 03:55, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

I would like to have seen how Tarsky represents denotation. 69.84.246.38 (talk) 21:55, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Really?[edit]

I love how old this article is, how important it is, and how nobody has fixed it. It's hilarious. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.77.16.162 (talk) 00:56, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

denotation is not referent[edit]

Seems to me the article lets believe that denotation is just another funny term for referent... The opposite of referent is meaning, in the plain, ordinary... sense of the term, of which denotation should be some part or dimension. I guess on my part that denotation and its opposite connotation are but artifacts of attempts to define meanings conceptually, as in modern dictionaries: the denotation is what lets itself define, the connotation being all the rest... denis 'spir' (talk) 10:55, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
