This is still confusing the example. The minor premise, Some Fish are not whales, is only true if "Fish" is intended in a non-scientific sense, as in sea creatures, or things that live in water. However, the major premise is only true if "Fish" is intended in a scientific sense, as clearly there are indeed mammals that live in water. Thus, regardless of the intention to use it as an example of a syllogistic fallacy, we never reach a clear understanding of why, due to encountering a Fallacy of Equivocation in the premises themselves. This example needs to be changed to something that is *only* a Fallacy of Exclusive Premises. Memige (talk) 21:54, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
