"Yes," sigh the fops of fancy, "and in every register it spells J-E-L-L-O." Well, it happens not to be that sort of redundancy - or only trivially so.
Nor will it do to retreat from "word" and "language" to "text," as they do in their 1992 article; because the same sort of problem arises for "text" and even "literary text" that arose for "sentence." That is, if "text" is defined in such a way that the author's illcutionary intentions are essential to the identity of the text and the "meaning of the text" is defined in such a way that it is identical with the author's intentions in the production of the text, then their thesis follows trivially. This is an acceptable definition, and one I used in Expressions and Meaning," but the point I am making now is: However defined, a text consists of words and sentences and they continue to have a linguistic meaning, whatever the intentions of the author.
Less trivially, the repeated emphasis on the artistic imagination as an 'assertion of power' raises the spectre of a disquieting convergence between 'semantic force' and Realpolitik.
(3) At L = 7, [Delta] = 26.46 - 24.49 = 1.97 and [delta]/[Delta] = .51, which although trivially less than [derivative]L/[derivative]Q = .53, in this instance suffices to cause the exact optimum to occur at L* = 7, since [1146/700][.51] = .83 < .84.
For such understanding we should perhaps turn to Fairlie's own sensitive analysis in 1980 of the Reagan voter: "narrow minded, book banning, truth censoring, mean spirited; ungenerous, envious, intolerant, afraid; chicken, bullying; trivially moral, falsely patriotic; family cheapening, flag cheapening, God cheapening; the common man, shallow, small, sanctimonious.'
It's trivially easy for humans to misconfigure an important setting, such as encryption for a data store or ingress ports in a security group, rendering an application exposed to bad actors or out of compliance with corporate or regulatory policies.
At that point, it becomes trivially easy to decrypt traffic coming from a device.
They would try because editing genes with CRISPR was trivially easy, and it would be a sensational thing to do.
Theorem: Every pseudo neutrosophic biring is trivially a neutrosophic biring but the converse may not be true.
These inquiries have recently encountered opposition: a group of philosophers, drawing inspiration from Aristotle, have argued that many or all of the existence questions debated by metaphysicians can be answered trivially, and so are not worth debating.
It is straightforward to see that the set of derivations in Der(G, N) that are trivial on [[OMEGA].sub.1] (N) or [[OMEGA].sub.2](N) if p = 2 (which in fact can be identified to the ring Der(G/[[OMEGA].sub.1] (N), N) or Der(G/[[OMEGA].sub.2](N), N) for p = 2) forms a left p-nil ring, it follows that the above theorems apply to the group of automorphisms acting trivially on G/N and [[OMEGA].sub.1](N) ([[OMEGA].sub.2] (N) if p = 2).
