Identity, Definition, and Existence

Existence clauses are translated into Oct19A by main roots. The domain is usually indefinite but doesn't have to be, as long as it's referential. There may also be subordinate words.

Definition clauses are translated by clauses with 2 main roots: the 1st is the subject and the 2nd is the complement. Both main roots may be followed by subordinate words. The domain must be referential.

Identity clauses are translated by a unified pair of clauses. Both clauses must be referential.
