In contrast to that the existential quantification is the attribution of properties to objects. See also everyday language, existence, existential quantification, existence predicate, existence statements, quantification, attribution, properties, schematic letters.|

|There is (/Existence)||I 23
Existence / relevance / ontology / Meixner: it is not trivial that something that exists, is real - but the opposite: everything that is real exists, - "there is" is unclear - Meixner per empty categories, per unrealized possibility as facts , not individuals.
"there is" / Meixner: here is not about what is "actual" but what belongs to the scope of the term "entity".
