RE: Yet Another We Need Schema Discipline Article

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.
