There are several central aspects of the meaning of linguistic expressions that are currently accepted as forming the core concern of linguistic semantics.

A semantic theory must:

- capture for any language the nature of the meaning of words, phrases and sentences and explain the nature of the relation between them.

- be able to predict the ambiguities in the expressions of a language.

One may add to these the condition that a semantic theory should provide an account of the relation between linguistic expressions and what may be called "things in the world".
