Abstract: 

The article is devoted to discussion of possibility of language oriented to expression of intensional contexts solely. The language of E. Husserl’s phenomenology is considered as an example. Questions about logical consistency of the language and its expressional possibilities are discussed. On the foundation of G. Frege’s logical analysis it is asserted that direction towards expression of extensional contexts is unremovable characteristic of ordinary language. Realization of phenomenological reduction is difficult very strong in view of this fact. However, author of the article interprets this circumstance as an advantage of ordinary language inasmuch as language oriented to expression of intensional contexts solely is logically inconsistent. This becomes clear in the application of the argument about self_reference to the theory of intensional contexts language.
