Homework 7: do problem 1 of chapter 13 of
HINT: I was asked about phrases like "... is a male poriferan."
You could treat that as one predicte, but consider: something can be
male and not a poriferan (well, in Spongebob's world, anyway); and
something can be a poriferan and not male; so why not treat them as
two predicates? That is, would you agree that "x is a male poriferan"
is equivalent to "x is male and x is poriferan"?
