They exist, but do they mean? Before someone starts talking about them,

Maybe it's worth discussing the distinction between private meaning and 
public meaning? Aren't we really glossing a spectrum of meaning when we

linguistic?

private meaning
meaning between two people
meaning among a small group of people
societal meaning
