Argument deletion, thematic roles, and Leibniz's logico-grammatical analysis of relations

History and Philosophy of Logic 21 (2):147-162 (2000)
I present a formal framework historically faithful to Leibniz's analysis of relational sentences, which: (i) engrafts thematic roles and the non-truth-functional connective insofar as (quatenus) into the monadic fragment of first-order logic; (ii) suggests a plausible ontological picture of thematic roles and relational facts; (iii) supports argument deletion and related inferential patterns that are not taken into account by standard first-order logic
