“But surely I feel justified when
normally I use the word ‘red’ although
I don't thing think of a def. while doing ‘so’. Do you mean that
whenever ˇnormally you use the word
‘red’ you have a particular feeling
which you call a feeling of justification. I wonder if that is true. But
true or not ˇanyhow by ‘justific’ I didn't
mean a feeling. But I think I know
what makes you say that or
saying e.g. this chair book is red you
have a feeling of being justified in
using the word. For you might ask:
isn't there there an obvious difference

17
between the case in which I use apply use
a word in its well known meaning as when I say <…> to someone ’the sky is blue today‘
& the case in which I apply say any
arbitrary word or such an occasion
e.g. ’the sky is moo‘. In this case,
you will say, I either know that
I am [¿1¿|just] fixing giving a meaning to the word ’moo‘
or else I ˇshall feel that I have no
justification whatever to use there is no justification whatever
for using
the
word. The word is just any word & not
the appropriate word. I quite agree that
there is a difference in experience between
the cases of ’using the name of the colour’,
’giving a ˇnew name to the colour’ & ‘using any some
arbitrary word in the place of the name
of the colour’. But that doesn't
mean that it is correct to say that
I have a feeling of appropriateness
in the first case which is absent in
the other third. “But ‘red’ somehow
seems to us to fit this colour”. We certainly
may be inclined to say this sentence
of certain but it would be
wrong to say that therefore we had a
feeling of fitting whenever ordinarily we
said that something was red.
