would anyone be able to explain ethical language to me in terms of cognitivism and non - cognitivism?? I'm really struggling to get to grips with the key principles of Ethical language and I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me out

cognitivism claims that ethical propositions are statements about that we can know - they are either true or false, and a subset of this is naturalism which claims ethical propositions boast natural properties of the world - utilitarianism claims this property is happiness.

non-cognitivism claims that they are not true or false, for instance emotivism which claims they are simply expressions of approval/disapproval
