Names/variables/constants/Tarski: variables represent names - constants are names. (>Representation, >Substitute) - for each constant and each variable of the object language (except for the logical constants of propositional calculus) can form a fundamental function that contains this character (the statement variables neither occur into the fundamental functions as functors nor as arguments) - statement variable: any ((s) individual) of them is regarded as an independent fundamental function.
