Must Synonymous Predicates be Coextensive?

Logique Et Analyse 95 (95):430-435 (1981)
Two cases are distinguished. In one case two predicates belong to distinct languages. A straight-forward argument is presented that the predicates might be synonymous without being coextensive. In the second case the predicates belong to the same language. Here the issue is more involved, but the same conclusion is reached.
