“The barometer ‘means’ that the humidity
is high.” – (C. L. Stevenson, “Ethics and Language”).
Well, one is distracted by Moominpappa's observation, when informed by
Moomintroll that Snufkin has migrated South due to the upcoming snowy
season, that, "Uh, snow? Let's go and read the barometre."
Possible Implicature: Let's not be so loose about our prophesies.
Mvh. / Yours sincerely,
