Posology.
1 Alegomorphics
§ 5 Elucidation continued
Nomenclature amended
1
1.
Arithmetical is part of
the universal international
language: as
more effectually than
Jurisprudencial language
is:
2.
In legislative and judicial
language, modifications
of
these —
1. Defalcation or say
Subtraction
2. Addition
3. Substitution — union
of the two.
3.
Apply this to alegomorphic
posology.
4.
I. Substraction: in this
way little will be to
be done.
5.
II. Substraction:
II. Addition: viz. to the
deniminations in use.
6.
III. Substitution — viz.
of apt to the unapt
denominations in use.
7.
Given accordingly
will be all those
denominations.
1.
Hand in hand clearness
of conception and aptitude
of nomenclature.
Correspondent to every
thing signified. Necessary
is an apt sign
not only to communication
but to
retention of a clear idea
2.
Confused and imperfect
the stock of denominations
&c — so of ideas.
3.
Hence the demand for
the matter of this and
ensuing sections.
4
In ordinary discourse
subject matters of
equivalence are
1. Single terms
2. Propositions.
5.
Hence four varieties
or say diversifications
— viz.
Equation indicated as
between
1. Term and Term. Locution
in use, synonymous
terms. Indications
of such equivalences
call synonymation.
6.
2. as between term &
proposition —viz. definition
7.
3. as between proposition
and term — As
yet denomination
none.
8.
4. as between proposition
and proposition —
Denomination in
use as per Chrestomathia
exposition.
9
One above another
rise all these equivalents:
and at every
step are more distant
from the originally
known.
Thus they rise
in the ascending direction:
and descend
lower than one another
in the converse
direction.
10.
1. Addition. No explanation
does this require
or admit, other
than that which is
given by indication
of its relation to the
original and standard
size.
11.
2. Multiplication —
Explained in this by
its relation to addition
— the intermediate
operation between
that operation and
the original standard.
12.
3. Squaring — Explained
is this by its relation
to the two
preceding operations
intermediate between
the result of this
operation and the
original standard.
Identifier:  JB/135/121/001 "JB/" can not be assigned to a declared number type with value 135.
