"Billy I hinted that the habit of some philosophers of speaking as if "true" were a predicate of type-sentences was only a minor aberration, which could readily enough be accommodated to the facts. And so it can. But it is not a simple matter of pedantry to insist on correcting the aberration. For if we are not careful, it is liable to lead us totally wrong. It is liable, when we inquire into the nature of meaning, to make us forget what sentences are for. We connect meaning with truth and truth, to simply, with sentences; and sentences belong to language. But, as theorists, we know nothing of human language unless we understand human speech."
