The third 'See also" is deliberate?

As an example of a non-tautology (& for want of a better home) - the term glottal stop is non-referential.

"The third 'See also" is deliberate?" Good gOD! Is it? My word, whatever next? 14:54, 9 July 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast

Being pseud(o) ironic.

To be self-referential it would be pronounced glo'al stop.

"Technically speaking, every mathematical statement is a tautology"[edit]

Technically speaking, every mathematical statement is a tautology? That doesn't seem... accurate. Mathematics certainly allows for predicates, and conditional truth. Every step of a proof is an implication that is not necessarily bidirectional. Godel certainly seemed to make a pretty good case that no mathematical system can be innately tautological. I'm not sure if this is a good statement to make? ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 18:35, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
