Abstract:

In sentence-structure determination, values are tentatively defined as numbers assigned to types of syntactic relations in such a way that connections of higher value are established in preference to connections of lower value. For a text in which sentence structures are known, the values of some syntactic relations can be estimated by the following plan assign value 1 to a relation provided no relation is known to have lower value assign value 2 to a relation provided all relations known to have lower value are also known to have value 1 etc. The same procedure can be used for assigning adjectives to order classes, and for other similar purposes.
