Although this inequality exists between the requests for an answer and the assertions, we prefer to discuss the link between concepts and requests for an answer on the basis of the related assertions (we need to keep in mind that there is an almost unlimited number of forms that requests of an answer can take1). The use of assertions therefore simplifies the discussion. In Chapters 3 and 4, we will discuss how these assertions can be transformed into requests for an answer. In order to discuss the link between the basic concepts and their related assertions, the next section introduces the structure of assertions.

9c) is a behavior. 9d The position of blacks will change. 9e The position of blacks has changed. 9e, a past event. This structure is frequently used to present behavior, behavioral intentions, and past and future events.
