Hi Prof. Lee,

Thanks for your explanations.

If I understood the problem correctly, the main problem are
abbreviated associations within topic blocks.

So, this would be difficult to read:

    a) Lennon born-in Liverpool
              died-in New-York .

    b) Lennon Birth-Place Liverpool
              Place-Of-Death New-York .

This would be easier to read:

    c) Lennon born-in(Liverpool)

And this would be the form Koreans would use (ignoring the SVO
problem for a second):

    d) Lennon Birth-Place(Liverpool)

Are my assumptions correct so far?

And using a semicolon would enhance the readability one
more time?

    e) Lennon Birth-Place(Liverpool);

Please note, that the parenthesis already indicate that you're
creating an association between "Lennon" and the other subject
("Liverpool" and "New-York").
