Any word has a range of uses which can be studied, in detail, individually. We would be naïve to kid ourselves that we are describing ‘the phenomena’ or ‘the data’: to talk of a word is to talk already of an abstraction. But at the lowest level of abstraction that concerns us, downstairs has what we may call a ‘microsyntax’, in which it combines with other individual words and sequences of words, such as walked in I walked downstairs or window in a downstairs window, which is different in part from that of indoors, which as a form does not combine in the same way with window, and still more that of, for example, opposite.

He therefore posits a system of nine categories, each defined by a different pairing of a type of meaning with, if we may use another term, a function.
