The view of John Cook Wilson, Statement and Inference, Vol. 1, p. 126, on 'Jones is a bad rower': here 'Jones' and 'bad rower' form a complex subject, and 'is' is the predicate. 45 Lesley Brown, "The Verb 'To Be" in Greek Philosophy: Some Remarks," pp. 224-6; 236, rejects an existential interpretation. He urges instead a reading of 'is' on the lines of an incomplete and a more complete sense of the verb as with 'teaches' and 'teaches biology'. Brown's complaint, I think, lies more with an existential reading on the lines of the existential quantifier and not mine, of "real presence with hooks".
Early on he held that the primary use of 'is' by such philosophers as Parmenides is veridical: 'is' is to be construed as 'it is the case'. See "The Greek Verb 'To Be' and the Concept of Being," p. 147; "Some Philosophical Uses of 'Be' in Plato," p. 106; "Retrospective on the Verb 'To Be' and the Concept of Being," p. 9. p h i l o s o p h e r s m a g n i f y its i m p o r t a n c e t o f a r m o r e t h a n it h a d o r d i n a r i l y .

Since 'is' in statements of secundum adiacens clearly makes an existence claim, and also does so, it seems, at least implicitly, even in statements of tertium adiacens, it seems plausible that the basic sense of 'is' in Indo-European is existential in the sense of concrete presence. Even if, as Kahn claims, this existential theory is not correct, still many scholars have held it. So it does not seem remiss for me to conclude that the aspect theory of predication accords with general Greek usage.
