This paper addresses the problem of learning from highly structured data. Specifically, it describes a procedure, called decomposition, that allows a learner to access automatically the subparts of examples represented as closed terms in a higher-order language. This procedure maintains a clear distinction between the structure of an individual and its properties. A learning system based on decomposition is also presented and several examples of its use are described.
