Next: IMPLEMENTATION Up: A FORMALISM BASED ON Previous: Items and Features


Utterance structures are collections of relations. The best way to visualize an utterance is to think of it containing a unordered set of items, each of which is made up from a set of features. Relations are then structures comprising of nodes, each of which indexes into an item. An utterance structure simply collects these together to form a single object.
