Sample text

E. words, not affir­ mations. (25) 'Anthropos' (man), for instance, signifies something, but not that it exists or does not exist; it will become an affirmation or a negation when something is added. (26) But no single syllable of 'anthropos' (has meaning): in 'mice' 'ice' is not significant, but is now only a vocal sound. In compounds, however, it /the part or syl­ lable/ signifies, yet not by itself, as we said already. (27) Every sentence is significant, not organically, but, as I said, conventionally.

The remarkable thing is that the connotation of time, which is the only definition given here, appears to be only of linguistic, not of logical value, since it is at once excluded from the rhema: only the present tense is recog­ nised as the proper tense of the rhema, that is: as the ex­ pression of timelessness required in a general judgement. So the time-connoter connotes the timelessness of the ver­ bal predicate, which meets that of the nominal subject, and all that is left of the rhema is its notional content (= on­ oma) + the copula of existence.

That is: 'the (time) around (the present)'. But he does not determine what he means by "present", perhaps because it can only mean the timeless present, of which he thought when he said (9) "whether ab­ solutely or temporally"? That he failed to explain the principal meanings of "present", especially 'momentary' and 'at all times' makes a striking gap in the text, which more and more resembles a collection of more or less well remem­ bered words of the master. It is noteworthy that in the whole paragraph on the rhema there is no definition of what it signifies, not a hint at 'doing or suffering', 'action or passion', which 50 COMMENTARY TO ARISTOTLE will be the common semantic definition from Dionysius Thrax on, whereas there is an unnecessary repetition.
