    While most theoreticians of meaning in the first half of the twentieth century subscribed to a representational theory, the second half of the century was marked by the rise of various versions of use-theories of meaning. Though it is now rather popular to invoke the use-theory of meaning, it is by far not so popular to inquire what such a theory really is. In this paper we try to give at least a part of the answer, whereby we find out that the usual conception of such a theory is unsatisfactory. We propose that for an improvement we must conceive language as a (tool of a) rule-based activity, which enables us to replace the concept of disposition, usually constituting the backbone of the use-theory, by the concept of propriety. The resulting normative version of the use-theory then becomes the investigation of the rules which expressions acquire vis-a-vis the rules of the relevant language games – especially of the rules of inference.
