F. explores the relation between the levels of form and semantics in systemic theory. With as object of study the English personal pronouns, the research question is: within the framework of an explicit model of language, to which level do the systematically organized features, recognized in systemistemic grammars, belong? Do these networks of features belong to the level of form (syntax/grammar, lexis), to the level of semantics, or somewhere in between?
