Yes, but I had assumed that point was pretty well established
over the many years of discussions in this forum.    (02)

Rich had claimed that Kant's KdRV was "far more descriptive
of semantics than anything Peirce did."  So I wanted to focus
on issues of language, ontology, and applications to science
and engineering.    (03)

But I forgot two other references that would be relevant.
The first is my article on "Peirce's contributions to the 21st
century", in which I summarize his anticipations of many of the
modern developments in natural language semantics:    (04)

    http://www.jfsowa.com/pubs/csp21st.pdf    (05)

One of the papers I cited in support of these issues is an
article by Pietarinen, "Grice in the wake of Peirce":    (06)

http://www.helsinki.fi/~pietarin/publications/Grice%20in%20the%20Wake%20of%20Peirce-Pietarinen.pdf    (07)

This shows that I'm not the only one who thinks that CSP's
ideas are important for modern NL semantics.  And by the way,
Pietarinen has many more related publications -- go up one
level to see his full list.    (08)
