But these verbs do more than "simply" link subject to predicate: they also give information on that linkage. ] before he was white without that color, and then changed into being white. Thus, while seeming to favor a copulative logical theory of predication, this grammatical description of the copula in fact leaves open many questions about the logical features of the "copula". Moreover, as Kahn notes, distinguishing a copulative from an existential syntactic usage of 'be' mixes a syntactic with a semantic distinction.

I shall then consider whether the aspect theory arises from a linguistic confusion, following upon translating Greek into Arabic, a nonIndo-European language. In ordinary Arabic, a sentence of tertium adiacens would be expressed normally by a nominal sentence. " Alternatively, an 'S is P' sentence could be represented in Arabic by a verbal construction. Here 'is' would be represented by the verb 'kāna', which means something like 'exists' or 'becomes'; indeed it seems closer to 'γίγνεταί than to 'εστίν'.
In sum, to say that the primary use of 'is' is copulative and not existential is misleading, in the sense that at the very least a purely copulative use seems to contain or presuppose an existential use. I would have to agree that, in terms of speaker meaning, a statement of tertium adiacens does not always make an existential claim explicitly. Instead, it has an existential presupposition normally. Yet that does not prevent a logical analysis of the semantic meaning of such statements, or a self-conscious, philosophical use of such statements, from making that implicit existential presupposition an explicit existential claim.
