Abstract:	We present an interlingual semantic representation for the 
                synthesis of morphological aspect of English and Russian
		by standard back-propagation. Grammatical meanings are 
                represented symbolically and translated into a binary 
                representation. Generalization is assessed by test sentences 
                and by a translation of the training sentences of the other 
                language. The results are relevant to machine translation in
                a hybrid systems approach and to the study of linguistic 
                category formation.
