Review of 'Mind, Language, and Society ' on Goodreads

3 stars

''But sentences are tools to talk with. So even though language constrains speaker meaning, speaker meaning is still the primary form of linguistic meaning, because the linguistic meaning of sentences functions to enable speakers of the language to use sentences to mean something in utterances. The speaker's utterance meaning is the primary notion of meaning for our purposes in analyzing the functions of language.''
