As a pioneer in computational linguistics, operating within the earliest days of language processing by way of computing device, Margaret Masterman believed that which means, now not grammar, used to be the major to knowing languages, and that machines may well be sure the which means of sentences. This quantity brings jointly Masterman's groundbreaking papers for the 1st time, demonstrating the significance of her paintings within the philosophy of technological know-how and the character of iconic languages.

This research explores the layout and alertness of traditional language text-based processing structures, in response to generative linguistics, empirical copus research, and synthetic neural networks. It emphasizes the sensible instruments to house the chosen procedure

Pinker (1994) is a most entertaining and wide ranging account of the nature of language from a biological perspective. Valuable discussion of the nature of interpreting language in a con­ text can be found in B r o w n and Yule (1983) and Blakemore (1992). Introductions to psycholinguistics are presented by Matthei and Roeper (1983), G a r n h a m (1985) and Garman (1990). D o w t y et al. (1985) is an interesting interdisciplinary collection of articles on natural language parsing from various perspectives including the computational.

This is the topic of the next section. 1 introduced a piece of syntactic information expressed by the phrase structure rule NP —> Det N. This states that a noun phrase can consist of a determiner followed by a noun. H o w e v e r , such knowledge is of little use to an N L P p r o g r a m unless it can use this information to w o r k out that, say, the king is an example of such a phrase. T h e process by which the syntactic structure of an expression is determined is k n o w n as parsing. Parsing is an example of procedural k n o w l e d g e , knowledge about how to do something.

Is interpreted as meaning that all languages are spoken at the United Nations. Seeing h o w Prolog matches goals with such a fact shows w h y this is the case. - spoken_in(english, un) . This will match the fact above just as s p o k e n _ i n ( L a n g u a g e , u n ) would match with s p o k e n _ i n ( e n g l i s h , u n ) if the former were a goal and the latter a fact. Hence, Prolog will reply with a y e s . N o t e that since the variable was not in the goal, no value is printed on the screen; after all, the query is a yes-no question.
