Reply to Belnap

Nuel Belnap’s clear and vivid paper manifests in every line the positive tendency and constructive outlook that typifies its author. Nevertheless, I do have one bone to pick with him. I have problems with the motivation for playing down, or even abrogating the difference between commas and ampersands, between thejuxtaposition. of theses and their explicitconjunction., between what is said in one breath, and what is said in two, so to speak.
