But the selection of one group as typical implies a recognition of its attributes as prevailing generally though not universally throughout the species or genus; and to recognise these attributes and yet refuse to enumerate them in a definition, seems to be no great gain.
Names of the simpler compounds are formed by combining the names of the elements that enter into them; as Hydrogen Chloride, Hydrogen Sulphide, Carbon Dioxide; and these can be given still more briefly and efficiently in symbols, as HCl, H2S, CO2.
