Yes. An example is alignment of cultural codes (Silverman, 83).
In one paper I read, the codes of romanticism are explored to
show how the interpretive framework of a code leads to inference
or association by alignment
"Spontaneity/deliberation aligns to sincerity/facticity so spontaneity
infers sincerity and deliberation infers insincerity or untruthfulness."
Of course such interpretations are dangerous and a reason to question
ontologies, metadata, etc. A semantic network becomes a bad thing when its
interpretations are unchallenged. A transform is a way to challenge it.
