Since there may be ambiguity about where in an elementary tree another tree is substituted or adjoined (owing to the presence of multiple nodes with the same categorial label within a single elementary tree), the links connecting any pair of nodes are annotated with the location in the mother elementary tree where Adjoining or Substitution has taken place.
