In this paper we discuss a proposal for representing the logical form of generic and habitual sentences. The proposal is a development of Schubert and Pelletier (1987), although it stands on its own and can be comprehended without having first read the earlier paper. (Most of what would be missed would merely be a discussion of background literature, and reasons to want a different logical form from those extant in the literature).
