- Term used by Reichenbach for what are more commonly now called indexical expressions, i.e. those whose interpretation demands knowing the speaker, or place, or time, or context of utterance. The idea is that these indexes can in turn be referred to by means of the token or utterance itself: ‘I am cold’ becomes ‘the utterer of this token is cold’; ‘it is cold here’ becomes ‘it is cold where this is said’, and so on.
