A generalized connection, including Christoffel coefficients, torsion, non-metricity tensor and metric-asymmetricity object, is analyzed according to the Schouten classification. The inverse structure matrix is found in the linearized regime, autoparallel trajectories are defined and the contribution of the components of the connection are clarified at first-order approximation. © 2008 World Scientific Publishing Company.
