In 1972, the publication of Wierzbicka's Semantic Primitives initiated the Natural Semantic Metalanguage approach to linguistic semantics. NSM sets out to analyze the meaning of natural language utterances using only paraphrases built from a set of concepts called semantic primes. The main hypothesis is that a definite small set of unanalyzable primes that occur in every natural language suffices to characterize all natural meaning.
