  • M. J. Cresswell
Part of the Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy book series (SLAP, volume 60)

That is by supplying a relation which can operate on parts of the meaning of the sentence to produce other indices. I shall look first at a use of the possesssive which contrasts with that introduced on p.29.
