Not every occurrence of a word in a sentence is meaningful, that is, not just any occurrence of a word in a sentence contributes to the meaning of that sentence. In other words, not every word is a conceptual component of the sentence in which it occurs. In order for a sign to be a conceptual component of a sentence in which it occurs it must contribute to the meaning of the sentence. A predicate can contribute to the meaning of a sentence only if both possibilities of its occurrence, that is, in the affirmative and the negative, describe possible states of affairs.
