Inferentialism is a species of use-theory of meaning, which, however, identifies meanings neither with regularities of usage, nor with underlying dispositions, but rather with 'rules' of usage. is is, of course, underlain by the picture of language as an essentially rule governed enterprise. One of the frequent challenges to the inferentialist picture is that it cannot come up with a notion of meaning that would be compositional. In this paper I address this objection (as well as some other, related ones) and I show that it stems from a miscontrual of the inferentialist standpoint.
