Quick Reference

A predicate is monadic if it requires only one singular term to make a sentence: ‘…is mortal’ is monadic. The contrast is with n-adic predicates (relational predicates) that require n places to be filled where n>1. The monadic predicate calculus is a fragment of the full predicate calculus restricted to dealing with monadic predicates.
