Peirce’s 1870 “Logic of Relatives” • Comment 3

Anything that is a Giver of Anything to a Lover of Anything
\text{Figure 21. Anything that is a Giver of Anything to a Lover of Anything}

In passing to more complex combinations of relative terms and the extensional relations they denote, as we began to do in Comments 10.6 and 10.7, I used words like composite and composition along with the usual composition sign ``\circ" to describe their structures.  That amounts to loose speech on my part and I may have to reform my Sprach at a later stage of the Spiel.

At any rate, we need to distinguish the more complex forms of combination encountered here from the ordinary composition of dyadic relations symbolized by ``\circ", whose result must stay within the class of dyadic relations.  We can draw that distinction by means of an adjective or a substantive term — so long as we see it we can parse the words later.
