Discusses some issues about indeterminacy of reference and truth, from two points of view about reference and truth: that of a correspondence theory and that of a disquotational theory. It is argued that a correspondence theorist can continue to accept the usual disquotation schemas for reference and truth, despite the indeterminacy. And it is argued that the disquotationalist can accept indeterminacy even in his own conceptual scheme. Together, these claims mean that the two views on truth are much closer in their treatments of indeterminacy than one might have thought. Also discusses indeterminacy in our logical and mathematical vocabulary.

Keywords:   correspondence theory of truth, disquotation, disquotationalism, finiteness, indeterminacy, logical connectives, mathematics, reference, truth
