      If you want to assume the context principle both for a language L and a sub-language L ′ and avoid contradictions, this relativisation is vital, for it is not guaranteed that two expressions that are synonymous in L ′ will stay synonymous in L, even if the interpretation of the sentences of L ′ stays the same and L and L ′ satisfy the context principle.
