abstract
The project is, firstly, a historiographical and metathoretical investigation into the basic concepts of contemporary formal and cognitive language theories. This research will be focused on the semantic component of both theories. Louis Hjelmslev's Glossematica will be used as a model for comparison. In the second part, the research aims to implement a simplified model that can be used for restricted contexts.
