• The preposition semantics routine for by is called with the verb phrase and noun phrase tokens as arguments. bysem calls idrfnt to identify the referent of tok5; this causes tok5 to be assigned the semantic frame physent and causes a new object person6 to be created and added to the physical model.

    bysem then makes tok5 the filler for the subj case argument of the verb phrase token tok4.

  • Since the whole sentence has now been parsed, the verb semantics for the verb support are now called. The structure seen by supportsem is as follows:
    tok1             tok4           tok5
     tok    end       tok  support   sframe physent
     sframe locpart   subj tok5      rfnt   (person6)
     semobj (pole3)   obj  tok1

    This is of the form support .
