Limited vocabulary for Asa H

If there can be a limited (minimal) vocabulary and a small number of primitive terms and concepts (in the sense of Ramsey, Carnap, Lewis, the Canberra plan, and Carnap's aufbau project) then I would want to be sure to ground each of those concepts using the methods I described in my blogs of 1 Oct. 2015 and 5 Nov. 2015.  (The set of primitive concepts may not be unique, of course.) Not all of the concepts need be defined on the same level in the case hierarchy. They may reside in different languages.
