English[edit]

Noun[edit]

designatum (plural designata)

  1. (semantics) That which is named or designated by a linguistic term.
    • 2007, Ilhan Inan, "Rigid general terms and essential predicates," Philosophical Studies, vol. 140, no. 2, p. 225:
      I am inclined to hold that if there is a plurality of objects that fall under the designatum of a term, then that should be sufficient (though not necessary) to conclude that that is a general term, even when it has a singular occurrence in a sentence.
