For example, All women are quarrelsome Irene is quarrelsome You can see that the middle term is supressed thus, making it a second order enthymemes. The complete syllogism is: All women are quarrelsome Irene is a woman therefore Irene is quarrelsome. If the major term is supressed, it becomes a first order enthymemes and lastly, when the conclusion is supressed, it becomes a third order enthymemes.
