    based on Lesley Brown's 'The Sophist on statements, predication, and falsehood' in OHP expansions here and there are mine: do not assume all of this is Brown's. Also, if you are interested in this material, please read Brown's article, which has a great deal more . understood in the Sophist's explanation of false statement: "we must fill out Plato's scheme with elements he has furnished elsewhere and here takes for granted Plato evidently means the Forms to come in." This is the explanation of a notion that is likely to puzzle the reader at first. Plato's other major contributions to semantics occur in the later dialogues Parmenides and Sophist, in which he goes beyond the doctrine of the Cratylus in undertaking the connected tasks of (1) giving an account of the semantics of such names as lack existent bearers, (2) refuting the Parmenidean doctrine that false statements express nothing.
