I think I've missed some of the thread here,
but I wanted to comment on the Soames' paper.
I read the paper, and have two main comments.
1. At the very end, I think he is touching on the
right approach. Namely, that meaning is
grounded in human perception.
The starting point is the perceptions and
thinking of a single person.
2. I think the beginning and middle parts of his
paper are looking at less fundamental aspects of meaning.
Namely, shared meaning in communication between people.
A person must have a meaningful sentence in mind,
before communicating it to another person.
Adding my own thoughts.
3. The meaning of a sentence depends on the context
of the thinker/speaker -- all of the pertinent knowledge
accumulated prior to the sentence.
4. Where does the mKR language fit into this picture?
mKR explicitly states/names the context which is implicit
in the mind of the thinker/speaker.
5. The thinker/speaker perceptions are specific examples of
entity has characteristic;
which ground the context of the thinker/speaker.
Ayn Rand do speak od mKR done;
mKE do enhance od Real Intelligence done;
knowledge := man do identify od existent done;
knowledge haspart proposition list;
