9. In the same vein, 'This sentence is not green' could be "formally" expanded as "'This sentence is not green' is green"-- in contrast to its unrelativized expansion as "'This sentence is not green' is true". The statement is subjectified or relativized when the predicate ("greening") replaces the truth function, so that the sentence does not refer beyond its own terms (i.e. to a larger world in which it could be true or false).
