Example text

These are two different property limiters associated with the qualificand and the qualifier of the sentence. But in the case of identity sentences, such as ‘a is a’, the property-limiters corresponding to subject and predicate terms are not different and as a result they do not generate any cognition. On the same grounds, sentences like ‘Ra¯ma is Ra¯ma’ or ‘the eldest son of Das´aratha is the eldest son of Das´aratha’ do not generate any cognition, though their parts generate cognitions. Note that the terms concerned – ‘Ra¯ma’ and ‘The eldest son of Das´aratha’ – though distinct in terms of their meaning, have the same referent.

But still a question can be raised: Can the concept of limiter be seen as an indicator, or ‘upalaksana’. Consider ˙ ˙ the sentence ‘This is a pot’; it has been said that the word ‘pot’ is a particular which is determined by a property like pothood.
