Nevertheless it will be shown that even here the ~ distribution of the empty word labelling some arrows provides for an explanation of homonymity (e.f. there can be two different paths So they S I are $2~ S 4 flying S 5 planes So " and So they S 1 are $3 flying S6~S 5 planes So, giving the sentence they are flying planes. 5. It can be assumed that the units of the level of words and that of syntactic groups (in some cases also of simple sentences) are generated not' only by a device equivalent to a phrase Structure grammar (e.f. a dependency gram- mar), but may be generated by a simplifier device (a restricted or non-restrlcted FS grammar), the...
