Sandler and Grinder (1975) suggest that humans, when they speak, make a series of choices about the form they use to communicate their experience. Their experience of the world (a representation) is communicated in a "complete linguistic representation of their experience"--the Deep Structure (Bandler & Grinder, 1975, p. 35). The Surface Structure is the result of making the series of choices which Sandler and Grinder (1975) describe as 11 a sentence or sequence of words which we recognize as a well-formed group of words in our language" (p. 35). Thus, we have a Meta-representation--a representation (Surface Structure) of the full linguistic representation (Deep Structure).
