We formulate a Curry-typed logic with fine-grained intensionality within Turner?s typed predicate logic. This allows for an elegant presentation of a theory that corresponds to Fox and Lappin?s property theory with curry typing, but without the need for a federation of languages. We then consider how the fine-grained intensionality of this theory can be given an operational interpretation. This interpretation suggests itself as expressions in the theory can be viewed as terms in the untyped lambda-calculus, which provides a model of computation.
