Summary

This paper explains a method of semantic analysis developed in the course of a natural-language research project that led to the computer implementation of the Multistore Parser. Positing an interlinguistic substratum of semantic particles of several different types (e.g. substantive, attributive, developmental, relational), a method is illustrated which makes it possible to map the meaning of activity words in context; the resulting mappings, on the one hand, incorporate much of what, hitherto, has been considered "pragmatics," and on the other, they furnish an exact definition of the semantic "deep structure" underlying the grammatical surface structure of a phrase or sentence. The mappings are here used to demonstrate semantic similarities and discrepancies between an English verb and the German verbs which are required for its translation in various contexts.
