In this paper the concept of utterance path is investigated. In the theory of knowledge graphs sentences are represented by socalled sentence graphs. The sentence graph of a sentence can be obtained by structural parsing of the sentence. Here we study the problem of determining rules for uttering the sentence graph. Given a sentence graph there are usually several ways how such a graph can be brought under words, i.e. can be uttered. The sentences arising from these ways of uttering consist of words occurring in the sentence graph in a specific order. Languages differ in the way the words occurring in the sentence are ordered. We investigate several sentences both in English and in Chinese.
