Azamat,    (02)

You are correct.  I was careless, and I did misread the sentence in
question even after your first attempt to point out the error.    (03)

My error is particularly regrettable as it distracted attention away
from the substantial objection I have to your remarks, viz., that you
regularly set up a false dichtomy between formal logic/semantics and
real world ontology.  I apologize to you for the misrepresentation in
question and would ask you only to focus on the remainder of the
message, which I still stand by.    (04)
