Wittgenstein - "a proposition is not a blend of words" (April 11, 1915)

Sunday 11th April, 1915: Just as (he had noted last Monday) a proposition is not a blend of words, so now LW notes that a tune is not a blend of notes, ‘as all unmusical people think’ (NB, p.41). (See also his notebook entries for 7th Feb and 4th March).
