Although LPs are expressed in any natural language, SPT follows some simple rules regarding their format. These rules ensure that any one LP fulfills the function designed for LPs, that is, describing the specific influence between two or more ISPs (Isomorphic Systems Processes) and also achieves the purpose of citation of evidence in scientific experiments.
- The general format is ISP1 “language phrase describing influence” ISP2.
- Can be any language.
- Can even be software language, or mathematical formalism.
- Can be more than one ISP for either ISP1 or ISP2.
- Prefer selection of “language phrase” from a listing of most often used language phrases, both for consistency and enabling the grouping of LP linkages (influences) into a few common groupings.
