The principle is beneath the tense.

Illustrated Resume, PDF (3 July 2007) >>

No tense, basically. It’s beneath your thought.

Here is a very simple theory. (12 June 2007)


1. Semanteme and Morpheme

  The parts in our utterance are generally categorized as follows:
  "Semanteme": Word parts what have objective meanings
  "Morpheme": Grammatically parts what have no objective meanings

2. Information expressed by utterance

  The information of utterance is considered to be categorized as two kinds of cognition as follows.
  "Cognitional object": The information expressed by semanteme
  "Cognitional subject (as the cognizer him/her-self)": The information expressed by morpheme

3. Cognitional object

  The cognitional objects can be illustrated above.
  Both of A and B as follows are equally categorized as cognitional objects.
  A: The things outside of cognizer (paper, pencil, letter, etc.)
  B: The things inside of cognizer (mind, imagine, sight, touch, etc.)

4. Existences being opposed, and consist of cognition

  "Cognitional object" is opposed to "cognitional subject".
  On the other hand, "cognition" consists of the coexistence with "cognitional object" and "cognitional subject" together.

5. Cognitional subject

  The information expressed by morpheme that is grammatical part is difficult to explain.
  So is the concept of "cognitive subject".
  Our trouble of grammatical research belongs to this point.

  It is considered that determine the "cognitional subject" should be the most important further problem of grammatical research.
  Being researched on this site is the determination itself.
