11.9 Precision of Combinatorially Entailed Relations

Combinatorially entailed relations are sometimes less precise than mutually entailed or directly trained relations. For example, in this frame of distinction, the combinatorially entailed relations between Z and Y are unknown. Although “unknown” isn’t as precise as the other relations, it is still a type of relation. We know that we do not know! That is, we know to respond to Z as though its relation to Y is unknown. For example, if someone asks us how Z is related to Y, we can confidently say “Who knows?!??”
