This chapter argues that the semantics for a given language should be taken to be given by a body of semantic requirements — in contrast to the two standard conceptions of a semantics, under which it is taken either to be an assignment of semantic values to the expressions of the language or to be a theory of truth for the sentences of the language.

Keywords:   semantics, truth, semantic value, compositionality, necessity
