ABSTRACT. Swinburne distinguishes between sentences, statements, and propositions, and notes that there are other possible understandings of 'what is said' by a token sentence, additional to those of the proposition and the statement. If 'what is said' is necessary, and you can know what it is, then you can know a priori that it is true. There are no necessary a posteriori truths, in the sense of 'necessary' as true in all possible worlds, which has been called the 'broadly logical' sense of 'necessary'.
