By Roland R. Hausser

The perfect of utilizing human language to regulate machines calls for a realistic thought of usual language communique that incorporates grammatical research of language symptoms, plus a version of the cognitive agent, with interfaces for attractiveness and motion, an inner database, and an set of rules for interpreting content material out and in. This ebook bargains a practical framework for theoretical research of usual language conversation and for useful purposes of typical language processing.

1 has the core attribute noun with the concept dog as its core value. Concepts originate as patterns for recognition and action in the agent’s peripheral cognition. As values of the core attribute of proplets, concepts also provide the main key for the storage and retrieval of context proplets in central cognition. , flat attribute–value pairs) is called bidirectional pointering. 2 Internal Matching between Language and Context Proplets In order to ensure a proper functional interaction between the language and the context level, the two levels must be structurally compatible.

The vertical variable binding of Database Semantics is based on matching between the grammar and the proplet level, in contrast to the horizontal variable binding based on quantifiers, as in Predicate Calculus (cf. Sects. 2). 42 3. 5 N ON - TIME - LINEAR DERIVATION ( PRINCIPLE OF POSS . , until the terminal nodes Julia, knows, and John are reached (phrase structure derivation). Next the terminal nodes are replaced by feature structures via lexical lookup. Finally, the lexical feature structures are unified (indicated by the dotted arrows), resulting in one big recursive feature structure (result).

Vision, or modalities. 3 Alternative Ontologies for Referring with Language Relating language expressions to the intended objects or events in the world is called reference. The agent-oriented approach of Database Semantics reconstructs reference as a cognitive procedure in the agent’s head. In addition to the external interfaces at the levels of language and context, this requires the definition of (i) a data structure for representing content inside the agent and (ii) an algorithm for reading content into and out of the agent’s database.
