This paper argues that at least some cases of productive language use, specifically cases of apparent variation in word sense, require a treatment at the conceptual level rather than a lexical semantic solution. It is argued that the lexical semantics should be left underspecified in these cases, and the observed variation in truth-conditions should be attributed to differences in conceptual representation that result from differences in the utterance context. This involves rather drastic changes in our conception of the semantics-pragmatics interface, which are discussed in this paper. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
