2 My principal sources for the discussion of Davidson are: Davidson, Donald ‘In Defense of Convention T,’ in Leblanc, H. ed., Truth, Syntax, and Modality (Dordrecht: D. Reidel1973) 76–85; Davidson, ‘Radical Interpretation,’ Dialectica27 (1973) 313–28; Davidson, ‘Belief and the Basis of Meaning,’ Synthese27 (1974) 309–23.
3 The differences between starting with an account of sentence meaning and, on the other hand, starting with an account of subsentential reference, and the reasons for choosing the former approach, are presented in Davidson, ‘Reality Without Reference,’ in Davidson, Inquiries into Truth and Interpretation, 215–26.
