It is concluded that the presence of a range of analogies in structure between the two planes of phonology and syntax reflects both the human perception of similarities between the substances grammaticalized by linguistic representation and the implementation of the same mental apparatus in the construction of linguistic structure. These analogies are limited by discrepancies between the two planes, in the complexity of their categorization and the structures they project, determined on the one hand by the need, in the syntax, to represent complex conceptual scenes, and, on the other, by the constraints imposed on categorial, derivational, and structural elaboration allowed by the limited domain grammaticalized by phonology, a domain intimately associated with physical implementation. These differences between the planes also affect and reflect their relationship to the lexicon, where they are related by the asymmetrical relation of exponence.
