The essential point is that you need at least one stereotype (noun) with a named relationship to itself or a named relationship between 2 stereotypes in order to have an architectural sentence - it should be a language with grammar (metamodel) i.e. subject - predicate - object - the basis of a sentence

Solitons, orphans, only-children, unconnected nodes are not architecture. Remember, you can always identify a problem using a Concern and then you have the tuple - Concern about TRAK::Architecture Description Element
