The paper outlines a general theory of grammatical categories. These fall into two main types, descriptive and taxonomic. Descriptive categories are either specific or generic. There are three kinds of specific categories: overt (phenotype), covert (cryptotype), and isosemantic; each of these is subdivided into selective categories and modulus categories. All terms in this classification are defined and illustrated.
