Abraham Lincoln is the Author of The Gettysburg Address. Do you understand The Gettysburg Address? This seems like a question that asks for a simple answer of yes or no. But what is the question really asking?

Maybe it is asking if you understand the: Definition, terms, words, origon, subject matter, and content. Or maybe it is asking if you understand from the above list: All, at least one, most, or none.

Of course, the person asking the question knows the intent of the question. And the person recieving the question interpets what the question means. But is there a logical method to analize the question?

Any author and document may be substituted into the top paragraph. I am not a school student.
