Let us further restrict our attention to what I shall dub "classical" semantic theories, semantic theories which include the assertions that (i) a function V maps object language proper names into some set D which is at least a doubleton (V([Alpha]) is the semantic value of [Alpha]), (ii) V maps object language atomic sentences into some nonempty set F (the member of F to which V maps a sentence is the semantic value of the sentence), and (iii) the extension of a unary predicate of the object language is exactly one member of the power set of D, the extension of a dyadic predicate [Chi] is exactly one member of the power set of the Cartesian product of D with itself (and so on in the expected way for ternary, etc.
