Description The paper describes the solution to semantic paradoxes pioneered by Pavel Tichý and further developed by the present author. Its main feature is an examination (and then refutation) of the hidden premise of paradoxes that the paradox-producing expression really means what it seems to mean. Semantic concepts are explicated as relative to language, thus also language is explicated. The so-called 'explicit approach' easily treats paradoxes in which language is explicitly referred to. The residual paradoxes are solved by the 'implicit approach' which employs ideas made explicit by the former one.
