Types of meaning
Linguistic Meaning is what we will be concerned about for the time being. This is the meaning of the words themselves.
There is also the Speaker's Meaning, which may coincide with the linguistic meaning or may not (literal vs. non-literal).
Even within Linguistic Meaning there can be variation: idolectical meaning vs. language meaning; regional and social dialectical meanings.
(The sub-X in [FOWLX] indicates that it is the agent (X-argument) in each of the other features.)
