Subsection 7.2.1 Introduction

English has evolved to be an efficient way for people to communicate with each other. The price we pay for that is that many English sentences are ambiguous: they have two or more meanings. Often, we don’t even notice most of those meanings since they’re nonsense. But logical statements are unambiguous. So, before we can write one, we have to know exactly what we are trying to say.
