Hi McCoy. No, that is the point, these syllogisms are not valid, as you will see when you get to syllogism. The modality cannot be attached to the predicate - it is a modification of the copula (i.e. the relation between the subject and predicate).
Right. I'm getting ahead of myself again.
P.S. sorry my previous post was difficult to read, I was very busy with other things at the time.
