Lets try to write it
Notation is a system of written symbols.
Simple proposition can be written through a
notation to show the essentials of proposition
Simple proposition has just one predicator
which is written in capital letters
The arguments of the predicator are
represented by single lower case letters,
putting one of these letter before the
predicator and after the predicator (if there
are other predicator)
The element such as forms of the verb be,
article, tense marker and certain preposition
are omitted.
Preposition which make no contribution to
the sense of a sentence are omitted and vice
Two word verbs such as look-for, turn down
and switch on are treated as single predicates
John died
Romeo loved Juliet
r LOVE j
George was a nephew of Alice
Is a sentence to declare that two referring
expression found in the sentence have the
same referent.
◦ Example :
 Venus is the morning star
Use “=“ to represent the verb be
Obama is the president of USA
Venus is the morning star
V= ms
1. j LOVE m
2. c story
3. aw = artist
Jim loves Mary
Cinderella is a story
Ari Wibowo is an artist
It is used to make complex propositional
formulae by connecting simple propositional
◦ Example :
 Wayan loves Ina and Ani
 (w LOVE i) & (w LOVE a)
 Kunti was Bima’s mother or Gatotkaca’s grandmother
and Duryudana’s aunt
 (k MOTHER b) V {(k GRANDMOTHER g) & (k AUNT d)}
1. Bob will take Lucy, Cory and Diana
2. Either Bangkok or Chiang Mai is the capital
of Thailand
3. Japan and Dutch colonized Indonesia
If you have any questions,
leave it to my email or we
will discuss it next week.
Good Luck
