`nodetype`

= `atom`

Atomic nodes are assigned one of the following functors: `ATT`

, `CM`

, `INTF`

, `MOD`

, `PARTL`

, `PREC`

or `RHEM`

(see Section 7, "**Functors for rhematizers, sentence, linking and modal adverbial expressions**" and Section 12.4, "Functor for conjunction modifiers (`CM`

)").

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; `CM`

).

Atomic nodes have a t-lemma, a functor and other attributes. They have no grammatemes.

Atomic nodes usually have no daughter nodes.
