Abstract: In a case pitting the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin against the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, these questions were at issue: (1) In the sentence, “The land on which the sale occurred was designated a reservation or trust land on or before January 1, 1983,” what is the meaning of the word designated? (2) Does the sentence at issue name the agent by whom the designating is to be done? A linguist concluded that (1) in the sentence at issue, the word designate has its usual, ordinary, and general sense, meaning “To indicate, select, appoint, nominate, or set apart for a purpose or duty, as to designate an officer for a command. To mark out and make known; to point out; to name; to indicate”; and (2) since no agent is named in the sentence at issue or elsewhere in the text, it is not possible tell the identity of the agent. But since the designating has to have been done by somebody or some entity, it appears that the person, agency, or other entity by whom the designating must be done is immaterial, for the English language permits such identification, and it is entirely usual and ordinary for agents to be specified in “by … ” phrases, as indicated above. These conclusions were reached on the basis of both lexicographic and syntactic analysis, each of which can be used in similar situations; thus, the methodology suggests a model for similar situations.
