Meaning

All meanings, we know, depend on the key of interpretation.

George Eliot (1819-1880) British writer.

For a large class of cases -- though not for all -- in which we employ the word ''meaning'' it can be defined thus: the meaning of a word is its use in the language.

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) Austrian-British philosopher.
