Then we could take the specification of the type of attribution as a specification of the underlying system, which has a word in common with others -
II 213
instead of a single unsorted range, it will be appropriate to divide the area into fundamental types of objects: places, times, material objects, living objects, events ... then we can understand e.g. "A set of pairs of living objects and times" as a verb.
