It is a near truism of philosophy of language that sentences are prior to words--that they are the only things that fundamentally have meaning. Robert''s Stainton''s study interrogates this idea, drawing on a wide body of evidence to argue that speakers can and do use mere words, not sentences, to communicate complex thoughts.
