Awesome. I would think lemmas are semi-shared across languages. For example, English speakers and Spanish speakers generally possess concepts of automobiles, cats, and airplanes, and so those speaking both English and Spanish probably reuse these lemmas. However, a tribal man may not possess these concepts, but, each of these things could be explained using one or more sentences. This is where the difficulty comes in: translating when there are only similar or non-existent lemmas in the target language.

Ah, so you're saying there is evidence that when translating, we need to think of the meaning behind a given concept...we just access the concept itself (essentially a reference to the concept) and then we just find linked words?

Awesome, I'll have a look. The goal of this network is to translate a word from English to Spanish. It does so by separating storage of words from concepts. The concept of a car is used by both English and Spanish. Given that we start in English and want to end with Spanish, the network will find the Spanish word corresponding to the car concept.
