Notice that a theory committed to this view need not deny the uniformity of syntactic projections in the sense of the bar notation tradition or that of Tesniere (1959). The principles explored here are located at the grammarsemiotics interface, if the grammar per se takes only very limited responsibility for the paradigmatic axis. The substantivist strategy, from Dasgupta, Ford & Singh (2000) to Dasgupta (20lla), has been to implement a structurally uniform syntax but to filter its output vis-a-vis the orthogonal demands of semiotics.
