X Father(x) 3. x Father(x) o Person(x) Contrary to L, the resulting language L’ with the amended metamodel T2 has the desirable property that all its valid specifications have logical models that are intended world structures of C. We can summarize the discussion so far as follows. A domain conceptualization C can be understood as describing the set of all possible state of affairs, which are considered admissible in a given universe of discourse U. Let V be a vocabulary whose terms directly correspond to the intensional relations in C.
