I must now return to the basic metaphysical unit — the event — represented by the function ‘fx.’ Much of what needs to be said now cannot be derived simply from a consideration of the linguistic element but if anything can be said significantly it can be only on the basis of an intuiting of what there is. The problem as I see it now seems to be this: ‘fx’ represents a structure — the structure that is of the event. What kinds of things can be named such that their names can be used to implement ‘fx’?
