In standard logic, there is the existential quantifier symbol (the backwards

E) and the universal quantifier symbol (the upside-down A). I can't find

either symbol in the symbol menu in Word, so I can't figure out how to put

the symbols in my document. Thanks for your help!

    • On my machine they are in the Symbol font. If they are not in yours (it

      depends on which version of Word you have) do a Google for "logic symbols"

      +font or similar -- shouldn't be too hard to find.

    • Is there an existential qualifier? How would I apply?

      Is there a template? <g>

      Remove spaces, and substitute digits for the words between " ' "

    • If you don't find them in the Mathematical Operators character subset of a

      given font, then you'll need to insert the characters from the Symbol font

      (0034 and 0036).

    • Thanks Jezebel and Suzanne Barnhill! That answered my question. I didn't

      realize that, in addition to the Symbols menu which one gets to from

      Insert->Symbol, there is also a separate Symbol font.
