Abstract

In Chapter II we have described a map from linguistic form to a set of entities called situation schemata. The map is directed from linguistic form to situation schemata, hence the primacy of the former over the latter. As explained in I.1 of the introduction, the situation schema is a theoretical notation, a convenient way of summing up information from the linguistic form relevant for the semantic interpretation.
