Remark 2.  mKR has almost no grammatical "accidents"
(Ockham Chapter 3)
In designing the mKR language,
I identified "accidents" as redundant, error-correcting mechanisms
which are appropriate for spoken & written English,
but not for mKR.
This makes mKR closer to Ockham's mental language.
The only "accident" in mKR is the active-passive distinction,
which interchanges subject and object, i.e., changes the
focus/viewpoint of the proposition.
In mKR
number info. is specified by quantifiers
tense info. is specified by at time = t
