My framework offers a novel semantic analysis of sentences that ascribe to an agent a mental state having an intentional object. Making use of the analysis of intentional states presented in Sect.  4.7, I discern in Sect. 6.2 four senses of the notion of intentional object and indicate how mental states involving different types of objects of thought can be uniformly represented in my semantic framework: propositional thoughts, plural thoughts, thoughts with an indeterminate object, singular thoughts, and thoughts representing specific physical objects.
