A few more words about to types and tokens… Last time, we noted that two tokens of the same string of words (declarative sentence) can express different propositions. The type/token distinction applies to more than just sentences and propositions. Recall that “tokens” is another word for instances or items. How many tokens are in this room? In order to answer, you need to know what type of tokens are to be counted. people? chairs? carpet tiles? atoms?

1091001notesweek2 © 2 CP1 (roughly): A proposition is true if and only if it corresponds to the facts “facts”= the way things are “propositions”= descriptions of the way things (allegedly) are A consequence of CP1 TV : Every proposition has exactly one truth value. What‟s a truth value? The property of being true or of being false. So, every proposition is either true or false, but not both. (p. 31) Does OTV imply that we know the truth value of all propositions? If we all believe that a proposition is true, does it follow from CP1 and OTV that it is? Another consequence of CP1: The truth or falsity of a proposition is not a matter of the way people feel about it. It‟s an “objective” matter.
