Most people here use A(x) E(x) or Ax Ex
I *emphasised* ALL(F): merely to imply the reading "ALL FUNCTIONS", since that was my point about 2OL.
<= is definable using Peano Arithmetic
A(n) 0 <= n A(m) A(n) s(m)<=s(n) > m<=n
e.g.
s(0) <= s(s((0)) ?
m=0 n=s(0)
s(m)<=s(n) > m<=n 2nd Axiom
0 <= s(0) 1st Axiom
