non-nominal quantification / Prior: e.g. "whoever" from "who", "where ever" from "there", "somehow" - correspond to adverbs - e.g. "it s something I m not" - an adjective and not a noun - Tractatus : (Also PI ยง 134) "this is the way things are" -> "sentence variable"
I 38
higher quantification / sentence variable / Wittgenstein / Prior: "things are such" does not tell even how things are but "things are somehow" is doing it! - to the extent of the logically true "for some p, p - so you can translate "x is coming": "for some x,x is coming" - higher qu: over non-nouns,"non-nominal Qu."
