Hi Matt,

In my view, sentences do not have such inherent
properties. Sentences without interpreters are
meaningless. Truth/Falsity are the properties of the
interpreters of sentences.

I prefer to regard sentences as having latent quality
which, given a quality interpreter causes quality. For
example ... John Lennons "Imagine" or your
run-o-the-mill Mantra.
