English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From scheme.

Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

schematic (comparative more schematic, superlative most schematic)

  1. represented simply
  2. sketchy, incomplete
    • 1902, William James, Varieties of Religious Experience,
      Dr. Starbuck gives an interesting, and it seems to me a true, account -- so far as conceptions so schematic can claim truth at all...
  3. relating to a schema
    • 1988, Andrew Radford, Transformational grammar: a first course, Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, page 228:
      Given the terminology we have introduced here, we can say that all of the bracketed phrases in (3) above are of the schematic form (4) below:
      (4)    Specifier + Head + Complement
      Now, we have already argued in the case of Noun Phrases that a Head Noun together with its Complement form an N-bar; and that this N-bar together with its Specifier ( = Determiner) forms an N-double-bar.
