Sample text

Many concepts and ideas have been fruitful and taken up by other linguists who recognized that he had put forward some very good ones. But his system did not prove very productive. With Tesnière and his "stemma" (1959), one is dealing with a sort of term-for-term representation. Then we come to a period of relations between logicians (either in pure logic or in programming, constructing in a formal language for processing by com­ puters) and linguiss with somewhat more rigorous relationships, and the pres­ ent, where the problem of constructing an SRµ is most definitely an important one.

With an utterance or a text string we are dealing with an ordering of markers. The idea of an order­ ing is connected to that of a schema, and thus to good canonical forms, regu­ larities ("patterns" [in English in the original]). Markers are representations of representations. e. traces of operations. Hence we are presented with a complex situation: some operations will lead us from 1 to 2 and they are more numerous than one might think because there is also an anterior level, outside linguistics, which is the area of cognitive activity in the broadest sense of the term: the construction of our perceptions, our tastes, our dislikes, our collective representations, objects with cultural properties, physically and subjectively determined.

On the other hand, aspect problems are also linked to problems of quanti­ fication and qualification: the problem of iteration. It is also the problem of conation (from the latin conare meaning ‘‘to strive"). ) For example: I am seeking to attain or REPRESENTING NOTIONS 39 I am selling my house: I am seeking to sell it (which we find in Latin and in Russian also). We introduce considerations in relation to an objective to be attained. We shall meet these aspect problems again when we define the relation­ ship between modality and aspect.
