Abstract : This Memorandum, part of a continuing study of Russian and English syntactic structure, proposes an explanatory model of the suprasyntactic structures of negation, interrogation, and especially emphasis. This last category is treated as a formal linguistic operation parallel to negation and interrogation. All three categories are best described as operations (transformations) performed upon the various nodes and terminal units in a phrase structure (immediate constituent) tree, from the entire sian, German, French, and Czech.
