Can a language have indenumerably many expressions?

History and Philosophy of Logic 4 (1-2):73-82 (1983)
Abstract
A common assumption among philosophers is that every language has at most denumerably many expressions. This assumption plays a prominent role in many philosophical arguments. Recently formal systems with indenumerably many elements have been developed. These systems are similar to the more familiar denumerable first-order languages. This similarity makes it appear that the assumption is false. We argue that the assumption is true
