Abstract : This research report introduces the fundamental concepts of the Unit Graphs mathematical framework that is designed to reconcile the Meaning-Text Model (MTM) and the Conceptual Graphs formalism (CGs), in order to represent, query, and reason formalized linguistic knowledge. Despite seeming similar, one cannot use GCs to natural to formalize the MTM. Indeed, a linguistic unit may be multi-typed (i.e., is an instance of concept types), and dually, links its actants in an utterance representation (i.e., is a n-ary relation). How shall we revise the basis of the CGs mathematical framework in order to take into account the duality of units ?
