In linguistics, logic, philosophy, and other fields, an intension is any property or quality connoted by a word, phrase or other symbol. In the case of a word, it is often implied by the word's definition. The term may also refer to all such intensions collectively, although the term comprehension is technically more correct for this. A shorthand way of thinking about the intension concept is that it is the intended scope of a particular thing or concept.
The opposite concept from intension is extensionality.
