n this paper we want to analyze some real cases of concept mapping and evaluate the necessity of accepting forms that are non-orthodox, both in the normal language and in a rigorous model of concept mapping syntax, provided that these forms are aimed at facilitating dynamic change of cognition and integration of new knowledge. In other words we believe that if the concept map maker is pushed to create her/his concept map within an excess of constraints, we would be at risk, as educators and mediators, for losing the main opportunity, given by this tool, to know, sustain and evaluate the learning process that is having place. The overload of working memory due to the constraining effect of the so called "rules for good concept mapping", has a very different role for children and for adults, as well as for concept map makers in agglutinative languages, as the Basque one. We want initiate a progressive and aware release of an excess of rigorousness, finalized to a better adaption of mother language to the necessities of concept mapping and vice versa, in every case.
