The paper describes an experimental model of syntactic structure generation starting from the limited fragment of se- mantics that deals with the quantitative values of object parameters. To present the input information the basic semantic units of four types are proposed:"object", "parameter", "function" and "constant". For the syntactic structure representation the system of syntactic components is used that combines the properties of the depen- dency and constituent systems: the syntac- tic components corresponding to wordforms and exocentric constituents are introduced and two basic subordinate relations ("ac- tant" and "attributive") are claimed to be necessary. Special attention has been de- voted to problems of complex correspon- dence between the semantic units and lexi- cal-syntac...
