They know that words are identifiers.
They know that identifiers denote (name or "refer to") entities or things.
They know that basic sentence structure is comprised of a subject, 
predicate, and object. That each of the aforementioned roles are 
associated with words in a sentence.    (02)

Given the right examples they will also understand that literals are the 
only mechanism for denotation.    (03)

I am not particularly interested in a debate about the virtues of RDF's 
subject, predicate, object based syntax.    (04)
