Sample text

That ammonia smells. But, as Michael Dummett (1974) has stressed, we can still ask what it is to know that 'Ammonia smells' is true (in English) if and only if ammonia smells. Call the proposition which is known - it is a metalinguistic proposition about English - 'M'. There is a difference between knowing M, and knowing that the metalinguistic sentence which expresses it is true. I could know that this sentence in the metalanguage (which in this case is itself English) expresses a truth without knowing what the object-language sentence meant, because I could know it to be true in English without grasping the proposition it expresses.
