Yngve outlines an abstract notation suitable to record lawlike relationships among properties of these physical complexes. Because this notation can be programmed on a computer it can be used to test large-scale.

Because all other sciences linguistics has a well-defined subject matter. it employs careful methods to observe, record and analyses the various phenomena related to its subject matter and hopes to produce unprejudiced, objective and verifiable descriptions. The approach and methodology of linguistics is scientific. It is as, inductive as a science could be, and is based on observations, formation of hypothesis, testing, verification, tentativeness and productiveness.
