Relations II 107
Relativization/Cresswell: E.g. "admires" is a two-place relation - ie it depends on two arguments - but they can be reduced to a single digit: as a predicate "admires someone". - Independence by adding - that is, it is either true or false that x admires someone. It is no longer relatively to two things. - V *: evaluation function (in the idiolect) can then play the role of a bound variable.
