Reduction EMD II 94
Reduction/Dummett: If the sentence is reducible (i.e.- it can not be barely true) then there will be a class R of sentences so that an utterance of S can only be true if the sentences of a suitable subclass of R are all true (((s) > logical form). - The detection of the truth conditions is then detecting the manner in which its truth depends on the truth of the phrases in R.
