Meaning Never Inherent Solely In Words

To say this much is to approach one of the great findings of modern philosophers and students of literature, namely, that meaning is never inherent solely in the words of a text. Rather, meaning derives from an interaction between text and reader, or speaker and listener; that is to say, the meaning of a text always depends in some measure on the set of assumptions about the text that a particular reader/ listener carries with him or her.From: a.co/fZQVUyz
