OK, I improve:

"This class comprises coherent sequences of binary-encoded symbols. They 
correspond to the content of an instance of E90 Symbolic object. 
Instances of E62 String represent only the symbol sequence itself. *They 
may or may not contain a language code*. In contrast, instances of other 
subclasses of E59 Primitive value represent entities in mathematical 
spaces different from that of symbol sequences, by using binary-encoded 
symbols, such as date expressions or numbers in decimal encoding. For 
instance, different syntactic forms of a date expression may represent 
the same date, but consist of different strings."

Question: A language code can be regarded either as a kind of 
classification going beyond the pure symbol sequence, or actually as a 
part of the determination of the symbols themselves. It appears 
practical to allow for rdf:langString, but are there other kinds of 
classifications, that one may not want to exclude?

Best,

Martin
