Wait, all referents exist outside of language? How do you reckon that? 
That just looks like an argument specifically constructed to exclude 
LMMs from having referents, so that you can say they can't therefore do 
'symbol grounding', and can't therefore understand anything.

Do you see how artificial this argument is?

At least try to justify this statement.
