A small point –
2 Meanings :
Here I would just like to highlight the 2 fundamental different kinds of meanings to any data.
Any data will have a representation. So there will be a “representational meaning” or the meaning implied by the rules of representation – lets call it ‘Meaning A’, and the “Commonsensical” OR “Knowledge-based meaning”. The latter connects to the knowledge other than that present in the data. Let’s call this ‘Meaning B’.
E.g. – This is a heavy velocity.
Meaning A tells me that the velocity is heavy, since the word ‘velocity’ is preceded by the word ‘heavy’ in the representation of the data.
Meaning B tells me that the sentence lacks sense since there cannot be something like a “heavy velocity” since velocity doesn’t have mass or weight (world-knowledge other than that present in the data).
