The relationship of language and ontology in the link provided is very relevant to the notion of how we might differential notion of Truth depending on whether say we understand Kant or Fregge etc.
How do we formalize our understanding without narrow confinement to only mathematical logic (even though the mathematical foundations in that form of logic are sufficient for many deep physics theories, experiments and also e.g. astrophysics - relating to current models of universe or elementary particles, thermodynamics, etc)?
Your explanation is logical, however, I do not have to explain (other than those who believe that 2 is True) to any one outside as to what 2 is even as a concept? Then only we ca say 2+2 and then there have to be those who believe that 4 is True. What I was coming to was that 0, 1, whole number and infinite as well as innumerable as concepts do these have to be understood as language or culture related concepts. At elementary school level we can say 1 is an apple, 2 are eyes, 5 fingers etc but as progression to numbers or whole and fractional numbers, what are the founding concepts that must be True in languages before we advance to relationship between these concepts such as equality or absence as 'zero' although it is not the same as either void or vacuum?
I read a bit of what you wrote for me and Avril and my inquiry is as to what should we understand in language that would then help us understand 2+2=4. Is it necessary to know 0 or 1 prior to mechanics of math or deeper understanding?
