For meaning normativism to be the case, it must be that meaning has a constitutive part which is obligation-producing. I claim in this paper that linguistic communication is such a constitutive part. I try to show this by means of appeal to Davidson's triangulation thesis. If I am successful, it may fairly be said that a Davidsonian can rescue the normativity of meaning.
