Relative terms, philosophy: relative terms are expressions that refer to a relation. This relation does not always have to be made explicit in the everyday language. Examples are verbs such as "believe", but also prepositions such as "before". Other types of terms are singular terms, general terms, abstract terms, and combinations such as abstract singular terms. See also opacity, intensions, propositions, relations.
