TABULATION.

Such a Table will be as it were is a System of connected Definitions exhibited
at a view — but only in an inverse order.

[+] [+] The most compleat & adequate kind of definition is allow'd to be by the Logicians, that which in their pithy language consists of the Genus & the difference: which indicates of what kind the thing is of, & the property in which it differs from other things also which are also of that kind. The partial trunk is + + with respect to those which stand next to it on the side most remote from the universal Trunk, the Genus, the its several Branches
the species & the opposition which is perceivable between
those Branches gives the differentia. The
Popular term, which hanging on the Branch is an
appendage may be stiled the Fruit, is the
So that beginning to one who should begin at the Trunk & so proceed carry his
eye along the Branches the definitions will come
present themselves out in [the an inverse] order the inverse of that
which

This may justly enough be termed the Fruit: for the due
rearing & fixing it is the end Fruit of the enquiry.

The best method of Tabulation (where the subject will
admitt of it) is &c Now then the in such a Table every partial Trunk &c

We may observe in this Table, how at every ramification
the branch in order to become a partial
Trunk (it's essence remaining the same) shifts it's
form & from the Attributive in order that it may
receive + + adapt itself to another Attributive, turns itself into a Substantive.

---page break---

I say, shifts its form, unless any one prefer the conceding
of it as retaining it, in which case it cleaves to & & unites
itself to to it & Radical the preceding Substantive, which now therefore must be
consider'd as applying itself successively to the branches
of every ramification.
