Generalization: a generalization is the extension of a statement (an attribution of properties) that applies to a domain D of objects to an object domain E that is larger than D and contains D. Time points may also belong to the subject domain. A property which fully applies to the objects of an object domain may be partially applicable to the objects of a larger domain. See also validity, general invalidity, general, predication, methods.

Generalization/Gärdenfors: Three types of generalization:
1. The hierarchy in the generalization of categories corresponds to the logical relations of the universality of the nouns.
2. Similarity relations between categories
3. According to Rosch (1975, 1978), superior categories contain much less common attributes (domains) than basic categories.
