Hey —

If I’m understanding you correctly, I’m not sure you can draw such a correlation between those words and issues of context, and I’m not quite sure what the benefit would be of thinking of it that way (I could totally be missing something) — for the q you brought up, “all of M’s opponents,” “almost all of M’s…,” just “M’s opponents” and so on would, at least the way I’m thinking of the problem, lead to the same reasoning issues —

Namely, that we don’t how how big “M’s opponents” is to the size of the population as a whole —

Again, I could be misunderstanding you or missing a key point, but those are thoughts that came to mind — hope it helps — mk
