1) "Accident" is said of many.
2) "Accident" is not said univocally.
3) "Accident" is not said equivocally.
4) Therefore,"accident" is said analogously.
5) Names are used analogously in virtue of some first use, which is referenced in every other use.
6) The only thing all accidents have reference to in their account is that through which they inhere in substance.
7) All accidents inhere to substance through quantity.
8) Quantity is the only accident through which all other inhere in substance.
9) Therefore, quantity is the prime analogate of "accident".
