yes : normal predication : 1 X Y Per which comes out as something like 'X and Y have an existential relationship with each other', ie X and Y exist and are one and the same 2 X Perh Y comes out as 'X has existence in a Y fashion' and has a 'depleted' verb to indicate that this should be an equational sentence of type 1 but there's something wrong with it, ie, Y doesn't = X 3 X Per Y this simply says 'X exists Yly' and is the usual in adjectival sentences and when the predicate is not unique bn ===== bnathyuw | landan | arR stamp the sunshine out | angelfish your tears came like anaesthesia | phèdre __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
