|Abstract||It has been thought that the meanings of some utterances might be explained or defined through their roles as responses, or through their roles as stimuli. I shall use the label ‘SRM’ - for ‘stimulus-response meaning-theory’ - to name a certain disjunctive view about this. One disjunct, speaker’s SRM, says that in some natural language L there are many values of E whose meanings can be expressed in the form: whenever any mature L-user undergoes a stimulus of kind S, he utters E by way of response. The other disjunct, hearer’s SRM, says that in some natural language L there are many values of E whose meanings can be expressed in the form: whenever any mature L-user hears E uttered, he does something of kind A by way of response|
