"Loosely speaking a 'quantifier' is just a function that says there exists at least one such-and-such."

Far too loosely speaking. In addition to the existential quantifiers you refer to there are also universal quantifiers, which are the opposite in a reasonable sense. Whether "function" is an appropriate word I'd have to think about a bit more. Peter Jackson 09:31, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
