# Inherent Meaning

You haven't answered my question! Ask the same question in any language and (honestly) they will answer, "T." That's because ONE has an inherent VALUE, as does language.

But "T" doesn't.

But it's a letter of the Roman Alphabet. If I asked you to print the first letter of a Chinese post, you would be able to recite it acurately. Mathematics is a universal language because of the inherent value numbers and symbols contain. Without an innate constant, language would not be possible. ☺

Chinese characters are not "letters" in the same sense as Latin letters or letters in many other alphabets. So no, your point fails.
Mathematics is a universal language because of the inherent value numbers and symbols contain.
How does that prove that other languages have inherent values?
Without an innate constant, language would not be possible.
What's the innate value of "bat"?

YOU know!

YOU know!
But you don't seem to know. If the word has an inherent meaning, you should be able to tell us what it is.

Really?
Then why is so much time, effort and paper spent defining them?

Without an innate constant, language would not be possible. ☺
Still making unsupported claims....
(One question: if there truly is an "innate language" why don't we all speak that instead of English/ French/ Russian etc?)

We do. All languages are based upon an innate, universal language. Should I create a new language, it will be based on the language I speak and understand. That which has been passed down from early humans, which was not taught to them, but which they KNEW.

Which has a translation into other languages.

What's the inherent meaning of "bat"?

What do YOU mean? YOU know!

Just answer the question. If there's an inherent meaning, tell us what it is.

It's whatever YOU mean it to be. However, there should be a translation available.

It's whatever YOU mean it to be.
Then it isn't "inherent" or "natural" is it?

Well it is.

Well it is.
You just said that it depends on what I mean by it. That is not an inherent meaning. It's a relative meaning.

Not by what you meant by it.

Not by what you meant by it.
Yes, if the meaning depends on what I meant, then the meaning is not inherent or natural. If it was inherent or natural, you would immediately know which meaning I meant. But you can't.

You are writing ab-out a flying rodent. Otherwise you would have written, "A bat."
