The theta system, which Reinhart (this volume) views as the central part of the systems of concepts, includes (i) lexical entries, which are coded concepts; (ii) derivational operations, which are operations that apply to concepts to derive related entries; (iii) mapping principles, which instruct the computational system (syntax) with regard to the order of merging of arguments. The central part of the systems of concepts is, in fact, the component traditionally labeled (mental) lexicon. Reinhart assumes that the lexicon is an operative component of grammar; the theta system is a theoretical model for the lexical component.
