Why we need A-intensions

Philosophical Studies 118 (1-2):257-277 (2004)
Abstract
I think recent discussions of content and reference have not paid enough attention to the role of language as a convention-governed system of communication. With this as a background theme, I explain the role of A-intensions in elucidating one important notion of content and correlative notions of reference.
