As strange as it may seem, it is possible to give a precise-looking verbal definition of an integer that, in fact, is not a definition at all. The following was devised by an English librarian, G. G. Berry, and reported by Bertrand Russell. Explain how it leads to a contradiction. Let *n *be “the smallest integer not describable in fewer than 12 English words.” (Note that the total number of strings consisting of 11 or fewer English words is finite.)
