Abstract

I CANNOT agree with Mr. Wilson that “aspect” is exactly the word wanted. The same wall has two aspects; if a southern, then also a northern aspect on the other side. In fact the word seems adapted, according to its common usage, to express the “sense” (sens), as well as the direction of the plane's normal, whereas I take it that the word sought for should express the direction only without connoting the “sense.”
