In my last message I concluded:
...I think this misses the point of the example. The point, as I read it,
is that utterances of "3 + 4 =7" can be true or false
while its literal meaning remains the same (as your remarks above and the
remarks of several other posters suggest).
Context is not part of meaning (or so Searle argues).
Sorry. I should have said something like "contra your remarks above and the
remarks of other posts."
