The Difference between Language and Perception

Spatial and Temporal Properties of Vehicle and Content

Of most interest to me, the spatial and temporal properties of the vehicle and content need not be the same with language:

E.g., [Getting away from the tiger situation]

(a) The vehicle of the sentence ‘Caesar crosses the Rubicon’ can fit on the head of a pin; it exists in 2014.

(b) The content of the sentence ‘Caesar crosses the Rubicon’ cannot fit on the head of a pin; it cannot exist in 2014.
