Well, what is meant is "meaning as an expression independent from its 
use as an appellation for a particular thing".

What do you think?

Best,

Instances of E41 Appellation are cultural constructs; as such, they have a context, a history, and a use in time and space by some group of users. A given instance of E41 Appellation can have alternative forms, i.e., other instances of E41 Appellation that are always regarded as equivalent independent from the thing it denotes.

Some appellations may be formulated using a valid noun phrase of a particular language. In these cases, the respective instances of E41 Appellation should also be declared as instances of E33 Linguistic Object. Then the language group using the appellation can be declared with the property P72 has language: E56 Language.

Postal addresses and E-mail addresses are characteristic examples of identifiers used by services transporting things between clients.
