The different uses do not represent different meanings or senses of the verb in game-theoretical semantics. Not only is the Frege–Russell ambiguity dispensable in my semantics; it can be shown that there are cases in which the Frege–Russell distinction cannot be made in gametheoretical semantics. Indeed, these cases comprise most of the typical uses of is. In this sense, game-theoretical semantics offers a counterexample to the Frege–Russell ambiguity thesis. Even if we do not want to commit ourselves to saying that game-theoretical semantics is the last and final truth in the semantics of natural languages, it offers a possible and indeed eminently viable semantical framework alternative to the received ones, in which the auxiliary verb to be does not exhibit the Frege–Russell ambiguity.
