BPFK Section: Causation sumtcita

Proposed Definitions And Examples





There exists a contradiction between the CLL and the ma'oste about the meaning of BAInai WRT causals. The interpretation we are using (explicated in the preface section) here for "ri'a nai" and such matches with that found in the CLL (Chapter 9, Section 13). To get the meaning shown in the ma'oste (despite...), it is suggested to use e.g. to'eri'anai instead of ri'anai.

This is shown as the following:

  • ri'a == with cause
  • ri'anai == not with cause (regardless of cause)
  • to'eri'a == prevented by
  • to'eri'anai == not prevented by (despite)
