3.1 In a sentence a thought is expressed perceptibly.

Ogden’s “through the senses” is surely wrong, unless it means “through the senses and into the mind.” P&McG have “an expression that can be perceived by the senses.” Black (p. 99) notes that this is “somewhat laboured,” and suggests “In a sentence the thought expresses itself perceptibly.”
