Words and Thoughts: Subsentences, Ellipsis, and the Philosophy of Language

Published in the United States by Oxford University Press (2006)
Abstract
It is a near truism of philosophy of language that sentences are prior to words--that they are the only things that fundamentally have meaning. Robert's Stainton's study interrogates this idea, drawing on a wide body of evidence to argue that speakers can and do use mere words, not sentences, to communicate complex thoughts.
