Connotations are often considered as additional meaning elements that are dependent on the speaker's evalutation of what is denoted in an utterance. In this paper another point of view is developed in which both the logical traditional and Hjelmslev's perspective are taken into account. On the basis of Mill's and Hjelmslev's considerations it is proposed to see connotations as a meaning component assigned to the elements of the language as it is acquired by the speaker, whereas denotation tends to be constructed later, when the individual is engaged in the reflection on language.
