 Word of the Day

syncategorematic • \sin-kat-uh-gor-uh-MAT-ik\ adjective:
forming a meaningful expression only in conjunction with a denotative expression (as a content word)"In any language, there will be what are called syncategorematic words, such as prepositions and articles," explained Dr. Lewis.
2.In ancient Greek logic, "kategorema" referred to something that was affirmed or denied about the subject in a proposition. For instance, in "the paper is white," "whiteness" would be the "kategorema." Seventeenth-century logicians extended this concept, which they called "categorem," to cover the subject of the proposition as well. So, in the proposition "All men are mortal," "mortality" is a categorem and so is "man." But what about "all"? Words like "all" that signify quantity (as well as words that function as adverbs, prepositions, or conjunctions) are syncategoremata -- that is, they are words that have meaning in propositions only when used in conjunction "with" other words. ("Syn-" means "with.")
