What results is a quotation, as in (4)–(5).
His quotation, from “Like a Rolling Stone,” was not a faithful reflection of what Mr.
Yes, maybe, quotation marks if he was “incandescent”, or “spitting with rage” – but it is completely unnecessary to use quotation marks for mundane words and unexceptional quotes.
An adequate theory of quotation must explain why not.
One way to put it is that an expression e is in the quotation of e.
The quotation is a name of a sentence that contains a name, namely ‘snow’, of snow.
Three questions can be thought of as the guiding questions for a theory of quotation:

The complexity of the data has inspired much interesting theorizing, and we expect that mixed quotation will continue to be a focal question in the theory of quotation.
Second, in the logical form of a sentence containing a quotation, the token that occurs between the two quotation marks in the surface syntax is discharged, so to speak, from the sentence containing the quotation.
First, the quotation marks are treated as contributing a definite description containing a demonstrative to sentences in which they occur, i.e., the quotation marks in (4) become ‘The expression of which this is a token’, as in (19):
Much recent work on quotation argues that we can quote (or do something quote-like) without quotation marks and that a theory of quotation should be capable of explaining how quotation can take place in the absence of quotation marks.
The Demonstrative Theory depends on the presence of quotation marks (inasmuch as they are what get used to do the referring), so if quotation can occur without quotation marks (as in the Reimer and Washington cases), it’s hard to see how the Demonstrative Theory is adequate.
