We construct induced bases for critical orbital spaces indexed by standard tableaux. As a corollary we obtain an explicit isomorphism of C[S-m]-modules between Specht modules and critical orbital spaces which yields a realization of the complete set of complex irreducible representations of the symmetric group in terms of decomposable symmetrized tensors.
