Each/All/Every I 200
"any" / "all" / "nobody" / "nothing" / "something" / Strawson: these are all either singular nouns (A-expressions) or end with a singular relative pronoun - like nouns in the singular - they do not have the character of B-expressions (predicates), and can not occur in such places
I 201f
Difference A / B / Strawson: a series of statements can contain a constant B (predicate) and variable A-elements (singular nouns) - it could follow a statement that contains the same B-element but d no A - conversely: from this finding could none of the previous findings follow - i.e. in place of the A can occur variables - (Quine ditto)
