Abstract:

The syntactical structure of a sentence may be given in the form of a so-called tree of direction or order graph. Conditions connecting the relationship of control sequence and uniformity in such a graph are discussed, and it is pointed out that a particular case of such a condition is the case of projectivity. It is shown that in a phrase with uniform terms, a true structure may be introduced when certain inherent conditions are satisfied. Several sentences are diagrammed, and sentence tree is illustrated and discussed. Author
