+A Size clause does not determine the values of an ordinary fixed point
+type.  The values are determined either by the implementation, or by a
+Small clause; the legality of a Size clause is determined in part by the
+values chosen.
+
 Since there is no Small clause in the above example, 3.5.9(8) allows the
-implementation to choose various powers of two as the small, and the
+implementation to choose among various powers of two as the small, and the
 small determines what the values of the type are.  A Size clause is
 required to specify enough bits to represent all those values.  Thus,
 the Size clause in the above example is legal if the implementation
-chooses small=4*System.Fine_Delta, but illegal if the implementation
-chooses small=System.Fine_Delta.
+chooses small to be 4*System.Fine_Delta, but is illegal if the implementation
+chooses small to be System.Fine_Delta.
