The primary intension of the sentence is therefore contingent.
The distinction between intension and extension is not the same as that between connotation and denotation.
The firm apologised for its handling of the issue, saying that its intension was to “make iPhones last as long as possible”.
(As with “intension”, “sense” is sometimes also used as a synonym for “content”.
An expression’s intension reflects the modal profile of the object, kind, or property picked out.
But then grasping a name's intension does not, by itself, put one in a position to use it to refer.

One may grasp the intension of a term and not grasp its extension, or conversely, grasp its extension but not its intension.
The extension of an expression at a state-description is determined by applying the semantic rules (or the expression’s intension) to the state-description.
While Jones holds that S is P asserts an “identity of denotation” in “diversity of intension”, S is not P asserts “difference of denotation” in “intensional diversity”.
Generalizing the intension-extension distinction to proper names solves a problem that must be faced by anyone espousing the view that predication is, at root, identity.
Russell's premises, disambiguated, can be recast as follows: ‘the author of Waverly’ and ‘Scott’ cannot have the same intension; ‘the author of Waverly’ and ‘Scott’ must have the same denotation.

It doesn't appear, however, that Jones is committing herself to any strong thesis here—that, contra Frege, there is a “backward road” from referent to sense; only that, in practice, a term's intension can often be gleaned from examination of its extension.
To allow for the intensionality of the transitive verb, Montague adopts the rule that if x and y can concatenate into a meaningful expression xy, the reference of the functional expression is a function which operates on the intension of the argument expression.
Kaplan (1989) defines the character of a sentence B to be a function from the set of (linguistic) contexts to the content (or intension) of B, where the content, in turn, is simply the intension of B, that is a function from possible worlds to truth-values.
extension, in logic, correlative words that indicate the reference of a term or concept: “intension” indicates the internal content of a term or concept that constitutes its formal definition; and “extension” indicates its range of applicability by naming the particular objects that it denotes.
This kind of approach to the problem of the meaning of simple expressions has two interesting consequences: (1) proper names have no intension, unlike individual expressions (such as ‘a certain man’—‘aliquis homo’); and (2) abstract terms in the category of substance (such as ‘humanity’—‘humanitas’) are like proper names of intentions, as they have intension but no extension.
