Atomic nodes are assigned one of the following functors:
RHEM (see Section 7, "Functors for rhematizers, sentence, linking and modal adverbial expressions" and Section 12.4, "Functor for conjunction modifiers (
The t-lemmas assigned to atomic nodes are speaker-oriented expressions, adverbs of attitude (
ATT), intensifying expressions (
INTF) or modal expressions (
MOD), also text connectives (
PREC), rhematizers/focalizers (
RHEM), syntactic negation, represented by a node with the t-lemma substitute
#Neg (see Section 4, "T-lemma substitutes") and conjunction modifiers (usually adverbial;
Atomic nodes have a t-lemma, a functor and other attributes. They have no grammatemes.
Atomic nodes usually have no daughter nodes.
