Question #106771

Defend or criticize the following assertions (say if they are true or false and why):
4. The claim “Matt is my friend” should be put into the following standard form claim: “Some M (people named Matt) are F (Friends).”

Expert’s answer

The claim “Matt is my friend” should be put into the following standard form claim: “Some M (people named Matt) are F (Friends).”The claim is false because “Matt is my friend” is the first premise, while the second premise is "I am Matt’s friend." Therefore, the conclusion should be "Matt and I are friends," rather than "Matt are friends."
