On the Communicative Value of Multi-Grade Denotation

Xiaoying Zhou


In this paper the author will discuss the communicative value of Multi-Grade Denotation. Denotation has always been one of the main topics in both linguistics and philosophy. And it is also very widely used in human’s daily communication. In our daily conversation, denotation is a means used at any moment. G-1 Denotation is suitable only for low situation communication. It has no special situational value. If we leap from G-1 Denotation to G-2 Denotation, this is the new information it conveys, possessing a certain communicative value. The G-3 Denotation (the denotation in plays and TV screens) is a rather special type of denotation. Multi-Grade denotation is a special communication means, but it possesses special communication value.
