> But what is "set comprehension" in French, German, or Finnish?
The comprehension principle has to do with the assumption in Naive Set
Theory that for any logical predicate, there is a corresponding set. To
put it in plain English, every adjective is equivalent to a collection
and vice versa.

The Finnish Wikipedia entry uses the term "abstraktioskeema" (Engl.
"abstraction scheme", <URL:
I have not heard that term before, and Google doesn't find other hits
Myself, I might propose the word "koonta" as a simple Finnish
translation for "comprehension".
