E.g. if a is a predicate, then a sentence that says that this predicate is true of someone - name: common names also can be used as nominal (NP are considered, but while a name can always be treated as a NP , a NP can not be treated as a name - e.g. "someone" can not be treated as a name - (noun phrase, NP) are treated as name - descriptons: are nominals.
