Most of the writing about clear cases is not about sociology of chances of convergences but rather about language-based determinacy. Clear cases may give the appearance of a predictable or obvious nature and basis, but one can't deny a possible facade. A close analysis reveals a variety of problems. Other influences that can make a clear case unclear or a hard case easy includes the issue of speakers' intention, dialects and idiolects, context, community practices and assumption, views about justice, ideas about rule-application, as well as the issues of vagueness and ‘open texture’.
