Encyclopedia > Suppressed correlative

The logical fallacy of suppressed correlative is a type of argument which tries to redefine a correlative (two mutually exclusive options) so that one alternative encompasses the other, i.e. making one alternative impossible. A logical fallacy is an error in logical argument which is independent of the truth of the premises. ...


Examples:

Anne: "Ants are not small because they are large to bacteria."
Bill: "However, bacteria are small."
Anne: "No, because bacteria are large to viruses. Everything is large to something, so nothing is really small."
  • Well, I would give money to the poor, but I believe that the world is so wonderful and rich that nobody can really be poor.
  • All dogs are black when it is dark. Therefore, Lassie is a black dog because it is dark outside.

This type of fallacy is often used in conjunction with one of the fallacies of definition. Fallacies of definition refer to the various ways in which definitions can fail to have merit. ...

Patent 4694489: Video transmission system (14992 words)
Since the chroma burst frequency represents the frequency of the suppressed carrier for phase modulation of the chroma signals, a sampling rate of three times the chroma burst frequency is about the lowest sampling rate that may be used.
Theoretically, the increase in transmission efficiency is obtained due to the fact that the spectra of the correlative encoded data is a better match to the frequency response of the television channel.
Another advantage of using correlative coding is that errors may be detected by determining whether the value of the received encoded bits V.sub.7, V.sub.6 change in value by more than a value of one from one 10 MHz sample clock cycle to the next.
