Occasionally small towns disincorporate, which may happen if they become fiscally insolvent, and services become the responsibility of a higher administration; for example, Cabazon, California was disincorporated in 1972.

Along with the manner of articulation and the phonation, this gives the consonant its distinctive sound.

Predicate (mathematical logic)

In mathematics, a predicate is commonly understood to be a boolean-valued function P: X→ {true, false}, called the predicate on X. However, predicates have many different uses and interpretations in mathematics and logic, and their precise definition, meaning and use will vary from theory to theory. So, for example, when a theory defines the concept of a relation, then a predicate is simply the characteristic function or the indicator function of a relation.
