RE: [-empyre-] fwd from Andrew Murpie re fundamental.
Well, when you say a rose is a rose is a rose, you're already within the
linguistic register. This goes all the way back to Saussure's basic
distinction between the referent and the thing itself; they're inherently
different, often disparate, and referents are usually radically different
for different individuals.
