> You're right, there aren't any worth considering. One possibilty is "meaningless". Here we would have things like tautologies and people do enough of that without encouraging them. Incidentally last night I caught Bryan Magee tautologising in this book I'm reading. He was talking of Hume and said something like, "when we say A causes B we mean B happens because of A"

I like that possibility a lot somehow-"meaningless"! Could that be an example of a lot of everyday language? Was it Wittgenstein that said something like "the mystical has to be shown", or something like that? The stuff that falls through the logical cracks or that doesn't have a name.....
