Is there an abbreviation, an English or a Latin expression for "not true in general, but possibly although not necessarily true in some cases"?
I suppose such a phrase may be used frequently in law and philosophy.
- "Children from divorced marriages are given to fathers is not true in general."
But in some cases a father is given the children.
- "It is not true in general that a workday in the UK is from 8.00 to 16.00."
But some people in the UK work from 8.00 to 16.00.
- "In general a monkey cannot read and write."
Although there may exist a monkey that can read and write, but we do not know about such a monkey.
