The issue (i) is admittedly largely a terminological one. However, it turns out that it is useful to differentiate between treating something, as it were, in one's mind, and treating it in the outer world. The term use is then plausibly reserved for the latter kind of treatment (we may use the term conceiving of for the former one). In this way we can contrapose use-theories of meaning to various kinds of semiotic and representational theories which see meaningfulness as a matter of being taken to stand for something else.
