    • n extension In logic, the totality of subjects of which a logical term is predicable. Logical extension is generally understood to consist of individual objects, but some logicians make it consist of species. The extension is also called the supposita, the subjective parts, the external quantity, the scope, the denotation, and the breadth. (See breadth.) It is contrasted with comprehension and intention. Many logicians say that the greater the extension of a term, the less its comprehension—that is, the more subjects it can be predicated of, the fewer the predicates that can be asserted of it universally. But this statement takes no account of increase of knowledge.
    • n extension A grant of further time in which to do something which has been set down for a particular day. Specifically— In legal proceedings, a postponement, by agreement of the parties or act of the court, of the time set for service of papers or for other acts.
