From Linguistic Form to Situation Schemata
In this section we connect the description of linguistic form (phonology, morphology and syntax) with situation schemata. We describe the relationship between meaning and linguistic form in terms of constraints. This differs from the more traditional approach where form, and in particular syntactic form, is related to interpretations through means of stepwise derivations. The constraint approach establishes the connection between form and meaning declaratively and without arbitrary conditions on the order of steps employed in actually linking form and content.
