Excellent!Linda what is Reference?

Jorge, can you tell us what is Semantics?
Of course Teacher .Semantics is the study of the meaning of words, phrases and sentences.
The technical term for using an expression for something in reference. For example the function of the pronoun I is reference to the speaker of the sentence: when people use I, they refer to themselves.
Easy Teacher. It comes about when a sentence with its meaning is actually used in a concrete context, it involves reference.
