The author - after expressing his thanks to Istvan Pete for the latter's thorough and many-sided assessment of his book (cf. Magyar Nyelvor 133: 295-310) - outlines his views that differ from Pete's standpoint concerning some questions raised there (the relation between gradation and measuring, gradable and ungradable words). He points out the interrelations between natural phenomena and human mental activity as well as those between gradation, measuring and clarification.
