This paper outlines a framework for connectionist representation based on the composition of connectionist states under vector space operators. The framework is used to specify a level of connectionist structure defined in terms of addressable superposition space hierarchies. Direct and relative address systems (:an be defined for such structures which use the functional components of linguistic structures as labels. Unbounded dependency phenomena are shown to be related to the different properties of these labelling structures.
