The function words of a language provide explicit information about how propositions are to be related. We have examined a subset of these function words, namely the subordinating conjunctions which link propositions within a sentence, using sentences taken from corpora stored on magnetic tape. On the hasis of this analysis, a computer program for Dutch language generation and comprehensien has been extended to deal with the subordinating,; conjunctions.
