Subject/predicate/Strawson: essential feature-localizing finding: contains universal but no particular, the universal still appears as something incomplete. At this boundary the antithesis subject/predicate dissolves - paradigm of introducing a predicate: use of an universal-introducing expression - a universal is in the same manner incomplete as the particular, while it lacks the completeness.

Subject predicate/grammar/Strawson: medieval assumptions as the division into categories A, E, I, O (either there are some or none, or all are) are pretence lemmas - solution: there is the question of whether the sentences are needed to establish a true or a false claim.
