Examines the relation between task action grammar (TAG) and the method of semantic components, discusses the general architecture of TAG, and addresses the question of defining the TAG concept "simple task." Developed by S. J. Payne and T. R. Green (1989), TAG is a method aimed to capture an aspect of the learnability of interface languages: the notion of regularity or consistency. TAG is applied to 5 design versions of an interface design case. For each of the versions TAG description is given and checked on consistency. It is concluded that application of TAG could make interfaces easier to learn.
