Hence, combining the two types of emerging metaphor, one based on metonymy--result for cause (Tendency I), and the other originating in discourse situations (Tendency II), what takes place is the modification of the former Old English structure and the increase in the level of abstractness

Leibniz sided with abstractness

For Milbank, philosophy itself, however radical, cannot mount an effective critique of liberalism and the modern state because it is limited by its own methodology; its abstractness
and formalism prevent it from making the kind of substantive and content-rich moral and theological judgments that could expose liberalism's bankruptcy and present a viable alternative to the modern nation-state.
Normalized Distance from Main Sequence (D): D is the distance of a package from the idealized line Abstractness
+ Instability = 1 where Abstractness
is defined as the ratio of the number of abstract classes to the total number of classes in the package and Instability is the ratio of efferent coupling (coupling outside package) to the total coupling.
And this was possible in poetry-we must leave the painting out since, though interesting and significant, it distracts from the main line of argument-because such allegorizing abstractness
, developed in the realm of the emotional life, gave a new twist to the "dramatic monologue" or "personal lyric.
The author shows that prepositions tend to gradually lose much of their specificities, shifting from concreteness to abstractness

Perhaps the main reason for this perception is the abstractness
of mathematical concepts.
These parameters are sentence length, which looks at the number of tokens; sentence complexity, which measures the total number of punctuation marks and conjunctions without punctuation; and the level of abstractness
of a text, derived from the percentage of regular deverbal nouns complicating the text, while nominalised phrases are more abstract than verbal ones (see Kerge 2003).
Malpas suggests that "the less a place is encompassed by our capacity to act or react, the more abstract must be our grasp of that place", and adds that, "in general, the move to more encompassing places is also a move to greater abstractness
