This article aimed at providing some extension of the modal square of opposition in the 1 light of Ockham’s account of the modal operators. Moreover, we shall set forth some significant 2 remarks on the de re-de dicto distinction and on the modal operator of contingency by means of a 3 Boolean algebra called Bitstring Semantics. This generalisation starting from Ockham’s account of 4 modalities will allow us to take into consideration whether Ockham’s thought on this matter holds 5 water or not, and in which case it should be changed in order to make it coherent.
