      PREDICATION    ::= predication PRED-SYMB TERMS
      QUAL-PRED-NAME ::= qual-pred-name PRED-NAME PRED-TYPE
      TERMS          ::= terms TERM*

An application of a predicate symbol PS to some argument terms is written:

PS(T1, ..., Tn)
When PS is a mixfix identifier, consisting of a sequence `t0__...__tn' of tokens or spaces ti separated by place-holders `__', the application may also be written:
When the predicate symbol is a constant with no argument terms, its application is simply written `PS'.

A qualified predicate name QUAL-PRED-NAME with type T is written:

(pred p:T)
An unqualified predicate name PRED-NAME is simply written `p'.

The application of the predicate symbol is well-sorted when there is a declaration of the predicate name (with the argument sorts indicated by the indicated type in the case of a qualified predicate name) such that all the argument terms are well-sorted for the respective argument sorts. It then expands to an application of the qualified predicate name to the fully-qualified expansions of the argument terms for those sorts.
