Someone doesn't grasp the concept...

I remember when I first learned about semiotics in the early '80s, I learned from this rather odd Prof who insisted on building all his conceptual frameworks as nested triangles that started with a dichotomy; the third point of the triangle was the synthesis of the dichotomy.

So it's a rule of three: This, That, and Everything Else....

Man, what a great idea. This will be a real boon for ESL students. Makes me wish they had a simplified Wiki in Japanese... even my hand-held electronic E< ->J dictionary often serves up tough words.
