So much for abbreviation. Now for equivalence equivalence or at length

II Equivalence indication of
equivalence expressions:
Under this is included
indication of synonymous
terms. Better known
than indication equivalence
or indication of equivalence is the
locution synonymous
terms. But these suffice
not: need has place
of equivalence as between
proposition and proposition
as well between term
and proposition, and
term and term

Better known known than equivalence is synonymities: better
known than the locution equivalent terms is the locution synonymous
terms terms: But need has place of the mention of proposition in the
logical and and grammatical sense as well as of terms: and the words equivalent and
equivalence and indication of equivalence applies alike to both
to propositions as well as terms.

as much as to say two and two when added together constitute a
locution which is equivalent to the single-worded locution four. But
thus here we have addition: and here we have the first step in the process
termed indication of equivalence.

2. Step two 2. Second step in this same process. order or track. Twice two are or is equal
to four

Three times two is or are, or make, or are equal to six: or instead
of three times say thrice: an abbreviative expression locution which the French and
many other European languages do not furnish.

Say now Four times two: here the lastmentioned instrument of abbreviation fails
us: no matter: it is of but little use — but little is the usefulness of it:

equal to three: so on adding continually one to one
