This chapter seeks to establish a baseline of what a theory of linguistic structure must be responsible for. For linguists, the chapter should serve as a reminder of the scope of the enterprise and as an orientation into the outlook of the present study. Topics discussed include the structure of a simple sentence, phonological structure, syntactic structure, semantic/conceptual and spatial structure, connecting the levels, and anaphora and bounded dependencies.

Keywords:   simple sentence, phonological structure, syntactic structure, semantic/conceptual structure, spatial structure, anaphora and bounded dependencies
