This paper summarizes stratificational theory, and applies its linguistic methods in a sememic analysis of English prepositions. The phenomenon of interlocking diversification is shown to be quite generally present among the prepositions. Also, the analysis of prepositions is shown to entail a partial sememic analysis of other words; it therefore provides a starting point for the sememic analysis, on stratificational principles, of the rest of the language.

While almost all the students who volunteered to participate in this study acknowledged in the
interviews that their primary motivation for participation was the hope that they could achieve the
coveted score of at least 7.0 in Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking, as well as an Overall score
of 7.0 – the English language proficiency requirement for an application for an Australian Skilled
Independent Resident visa in 2010 or for Nursing Registration – only six out of the 40 students

From the very beginning of the transition from the traditional purchasing system reviews to the
redesigned assessment approach that replaced them, it was understood that further refinement
and continuous improvement was planned. Consistent with that long-term strategy, and building
on the originally redesigned federal purchasing assessments, the business system assessment

(BSC) approach to performance measurement and management, which is currently in use by
many “world class” private corporations.
