To assert to belong to something; to affirm (one thing of another); as, to predicate whiteness of snow.
To affirm something of another thing; to make an affirmation.
That which is affirmed or denied of the subject. In these propositions, "Paper is white," "Ink is not white," whiteness is the predicate affirmed of paper and denied of ink.
The word or words in a proposition which express what is affirmed of the subject.
Of the three parts of a statement, the predicate, or verb, is the resource, specifically the Property, which defines what the statement means. See also: subject, object.
that part of a sentence which affirms something of the subject of the sentence
part of a sentence that tells what the subject does or is, or what is done to the subject.
one of the two main parts of a sentence or clause, modifying the subject and including the verb, objects, or phrases governed by the verb.
An element of a search condition that expresses or implies a comparison operation.
the verb and the part of the sentence that comes after the verb
traditional and modern grammars often divide sentences so that constituents other than the subject are considered together to form the predicate (e.g. John ( subject) kicked the ball ( predicate)).
related to the two-part analysis of a sentence, in which the predicate refers to all parts of the sentence which are not the subject.
Something that is affirmed or denied of the subject in a logical proposition; the part of the sentence or clause that expresses what is said of the subject.
The part of a sentence that tells what the subject does or has done to it. example: I always forget the difference between a verb and a predicate.
A predicate is a global variable that is normally used in conjunction with a condition variable.
one of the two main constituents of a sentence; the predicate contains the verb and its complements
a logical expression that defines the criteria for filtering the current node-set
a matrix with spaces marked by individual variables , which yields a declarative sentence when the variables are replaced by designators
an elementary sentence with holes in it for object terms
an expression in language that can be combined with a singular referring term to yield a sentence (for example, 'is red')
an expression that filters nodes selected by the node test
an XPath expression in square brackets that is evaluated for each node selected by the location step
a property or attribute or mode of existence which a given subject may or may not possess
a proposition that can have variables and quantifiers
a proposition that has free variables
a sentence-forming Relation
a special type of Expression that carries the guarantee that the Expression
a truth-valued expression involving tuple component values and their relationships
a verifiable expression about a packet
An expression that identifies a property or attribute that can be ascribed to the thing named. We are using the letters F through O as variables for predicates when describing an argument's form.
what is said about the subject. It comprises a verb, which may stand alone, or the entire verb phrase including complements. Children read. Friends and neighbours stopped by to offer help after the event. Grass is green.
the part of a sentence or clause that expresses what is said of the subject and that usually consists of a verb with or without objects, complements, or adverbial modifiers. The predicate excludes the subject itself, which gives it something in common with answers given by politicians.
Obsolete term for expression.
What is said about the subject or clause
The portion of a clause that is not the subject is the predicate. Example: am going to town.â€â€œJim ate the sandwich.
The part of a sentence that tells you about or describes the subject.
The verb and its related words in a clause or sentence. The predicate expresses what the subject does, experiences, or is. Birds fly. The partygoers celebrated wildly for a long time.
A logical expression that determines whether or not a set of tracing actions should be executed when a probe fires. Each D program clause may have a predicate associated with it, surrounded by slashes / /.
the part of the sentence which makes a statement about the subject
The full range of argument material of a sentence that follows the subject. The predicate includes the Finite verb along with any of its arguments.
The term 'predicate' in linguistics has two distinct (though related) senses, what we will call the subject-predicate sense and the predicate-argument sense. The subject-predicate sense derives from traditional logic, where propositions are divided into two parts, the subject and the predicate, and the predicate is what is affirmed (or denied) of the subject. In the history of formal logic, this original sense was generalized to include relations missing more than a single argument. In the resulting predicate-argument sense, in linguistics, the term 'predicate' refers to a head that expresses a logical relation. Typically, predicates in this sense are verbs, but other types of heads can function as predicates in this sense as well. The two senses are illustrated in (1) and (2). The predicate is underlined; notice that the two senses can pick out the same expression, as in the (b) examples. Subject-predicate sense: Bill gives money to charity. Bill swims. Predicate-argument sense: Bill gives money to charity. Bill swims. Sheila's criticism of the plan
A predicate expresses what is said of the subject; it includes the verb and any modifiers. The field stretched out lazily toward the horizon.
Each sentence contains (or implies) two parts: a subject and a predicate. The predicate is what is said about the subject.
A basic grammatical division of a sentence. A predicate is the part of the sentence comprising what is said about the subject. The complete predicate consists of the main verb and its auxiliaries (the simple predicate) and any complements and modifiers: W
In formal semantics a predicate is an expression of the semantic type of sets. An equivalent formulation is that they are thought of as indicator functions of sets, i.e. functions from an entity to a truth value.
In traditional grammar, a predicate is one of the two main parts of a sentence (the other being the subject, which the predicate modifies). In current linguistic semantics, a predicate is an expression that can be true of something. Thus, the expressions "is yellow" or "likes broccoli" are true of those things that are yellow or like broccoli, respectively.
