Grammatical Traces of Some "Invisible" Semantic Constructs.
Langacker, Ronald W.
Language Sciences, v15 n4 p323-55 Oct 1993

It is concluded that developing an optimal account of semantic structure and of grammatical structure are best conceived as simultaneous, mutually informative enterprises. (28 references) (Author/LB)
