1. The Specificity of a Word’s Dynamicity

We categorize as we do because we have the brains and bodies we have and because we interact in the world as we do.

― George Lakoff

Systems & Relations:

An agent’s performance in the world is routine given the right conditions. Word-sensibility reference frames aim to provide models for these conditions.

  • Word-sensibility encompasses personal, social & environmental systems.

Features of the Model:

Word-Topic (word sense realm) organizes, characterizes and summarizes lexical information. A word-topic is a pre-textual rendering of context used to anchor the responses to the words and contextual developments of a text.

Every Word-Topic has at least one quadranym providing one word sense.

Quadranym: Four dimensions used to frame a word-topic word sense.

Example: Time(x)

  • x = q: {future, past, present, event}
  • modes: {future, past}
  • states: {present, event}

A Quadranym is a construct from the Q-database. They are rendered by template and are used in reference frames for word-topic processing.

(Note: Quadranyms are basic skeletal frameworks for word-topics. Word-topics may also include, clusters of related terms, knowledge graphs or word vectors.)

Reference frame: Word-topic variables and zeropoint (virtual viewpoint).


  • zeropoint:{present}
  • coordinates: {events}
  • y axis: {future}
  • axis: {past}
Nowness remains the invariable event to any sense of change, procedure or modification.

Reference frames are a framework used to graph responsive dynamics.

Word-topics are clusters of related words or word senses used to assemble quadranyms.  Quadranyms form word-topic realms.  Realms nest together
