The general form of pragmatic predicates is analyzed in the paper. It is shown that intensional logic is not a complete system but is a subsystem of pragmatics. Questions are explained and formally defined as a partial case of stimuli, which are pragmatic predicates containing the imperative pragmatic function. The concept of logical emphasis is introduced in pragmatical languages and then it is shown that special questions logically differ from general questions only by containing an emphasized constituent. Modal epistemic operators are explained in terms of pragmatic predicates and thus eliminated from logic. Norms, decisions and obligations are explained as partial cases of the general form of belief, which is the form of pragmatic predicate containing the imperative pragmatic function. Beliefs are classified on descriptive and normative, on the one hand, and personal and impersonal, on the other hand.
