In this paper I propose, based on a critical examination of a comparison between Wittgenstein’s notion of secondary meaning and Davidson’s notion of metaphor, a defence of the genuineness of the distinction developed by Wittgenstein between both notions. I will argue that Davidson’s notion of metaphor cannot be assimilated to the one of secondary meaning and that, on the other hand, these philosophers coincide when they claim that the condition of possibility of the secondary meaning as well as the metaphor resides in the distinction between the meaning of the words and the ways in that we use them.
