[Corpora-List] QM analogy and grammatical incompleteness

As long as we're on a QM trip, how about an excursion into QCD (quantum
chromodynamics), where an important constituent is the particles that
mediate various forces. While we may think of semantic primitives
(e.g., a la Wierzbicka) as analogous to protons and neutrons, etc., what
about primitives of semantic relations, as reified substantially via
prepositions? Or, is this a stretch?
