Having some difficulty translating into English from Symbolic logic (the mixture of the quantifiers are confusing to me):

∀x(¬∃yBackOf(y, x) → Large(x))

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

@yunone, I modified my question. I agree it didn't make sense. Thanks :) –  KerxPhilo Jun 4 '11 at 7:17

In English, I would say that as "for any $x$, if there is no $y$ such that $y$ is the back of $x$, then $x$ is large."

what do you think of "For all things that not one thing is in back of it, that thing is large." –  KerxPhilo Jun 4 '11 at 7:36
    
@Kerx, yes, I believe that works as well. –  yunone Jun 4 '11 at 7:38
