Non-descriptive statements are either:
(a) The statement,"The grass is green," feels like it matches the way the world is (external representation) ,
(b) But it is dependent on a multitude of concepts and their interrelationships (internal representation).
(c) However, one also needs to adjust internal and external representations to specific contexts of use, by narrowing down what inferences are applicable and how much the statement is meant to feel like it matches with the world (operational representation). Aside from highly controlled philosophical abstraction, "The grass is green," has a context-specific purpose. It is representation for something.
