Categories: categories are basic concepts for classifying the objects of a knowledge domain into different groups or hierarchies. In philosophy, the category systems of different authors can differ considerably. Concepts which are not suitable for classifying are transcendentals, e.g. the concept of similarity. However, these concepts are again applicable to categorized objects.

Category/Linguistics/spelling/terminology/Lewis: an S/N (see above General Semantics) is something that forms a sentence together with a name. That means it is an intransitive verb - E.g. transitive verb: (S/N)/N takes a name to form an intransitive verb. - E.g. (S/S)/S two-digit connection or operator: takes a sentence in order to form something that can be combined with a sentence in turn to form a sentence. - Intension: an X/Y has no extension. Its intension is a function of appropriate intentions for elements of Category Y on appropriate intensions for elements of the category X.
