Working Paper

This paper gives some examples of the conceptual grammar approach to the representation of linguistic knowledge. First we give a short overview of the language we use to represent knowledge. Then we discuss an example that deals with the expression of verbal parameters (such as voice and aspect) in English verbal groups. Finally we discuss an example of a formal language.
