  : Dynamic Conceptual Semantics: A Logico-Philosophical Investigation into Concept Formation and Understanding (Studies in Logic, Language, and Information) (): Bartsch, Renate: Books. markup, there is also what we call dynamic semantics. Dynamic semantics • Is represented procedurally. It can be computed by programs running on the client or server side, based on immediate interactive user input. This computation can depend on the immediate context - including time, personal information about the user, user-initiated.

The goal is to reach a semantics of quantificational dependency which yields a fully semantic notion of pronominal accessibility. I argue that certain dependency phenomena that arise in quantificationally created contexts require a representation of context wherein the labelling of antecedents is not rigid but rather dynamic itself.

Lexical Semantics: Hyponyms & Hypernyms •Hyponym: word x is a hyponym of word y if the sets of referents of x is always in the set of referents of y •e.g. the set of poodles is always in the set of dogs •Hypernym: the converse of hyponym •above, ‘dogs’ = hypernym, ‘poodles’ = hyponym. The book offers an original theory of meaning in discourse that combines a dynamic representation of discourse with an intentional explanation of processing. It contains an exposition of a theory of default semantics and its application to a range of language constructions. Default semantics provides cognitive foundations of discourse interpretation and does so in a broadly conceived truth.

Dynamic semantics does not stop at reinterpreting vocabulary. It has also been a source of new notions of inference and consequence. One natural dynamic notion of valid consequence from premises P to a conclusion C is the following ‘fixed-point’ view.

In final information states reached by processing the successive premises P. Dynamic semantics is a perspective on natural language semantics that emphasizes the growth of information in time.

It is an approach to meaning representation where pieces of text or discourse are viewed as instructions to update an existing context with new information, the result of which is an updated context. Dynamic Semantics of Natural Language.

Another take on information dynamics is in terms of the meaning of the very expressions used in reasoning. A modern program is dynamic semantics, a view of the linguistic meaning of a proposition as the update of a hearer’s information state that is produced by it.

Thus, propositions become cognitive. We then examine the dynamics of information update which lies beneath the appearance of Team Semantics, extending van Benthem’s mutual embedding result between First Order Logic and Dynamic Author: Paul Dekker.

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): this paper I want to discuss the impact of this distinction between pronouns and variables upon the notions of representation and information involved in a dynamic semantics dealing with the interpretation of anaphoric relationships.

1 Dynamic Semantics. As this year's SEMANTiCS conference focus exactly on that topic, the time was right to get a degree overview on the Representation and information in dynamic semantics.

In contrast with its predecessor dynamic predicate logic (Groenendijk and Stokhof ), the system of PLA is a proper extension of ordinary predicate logic and it has a genuine update semantics.

Author: Douglas B. Moran. Events are treated as dynamic situations, with the representation determined by the semantics of the verb that dominates the situation. The latter third of the book provides a description of how the meaning of natural language texts or dialogues can be embedded in MultiNet for subsequent processing.

Published in print July | ISBN: Published online September | e-ISBN: | DOI: :oso/ Semantics (from Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikós, "significant") is the linguistic and philosophical study of meaning in language, programming languages, formal logic, and is concerned with the relationship between signifiers—like words, phrases, signs, and symbols—and what they stand for in reality, their denotation.

In the international scientific vocabulary. Dynamic Conceptual Semantics. The book presents a theory of concept formation and understanding that does not make use of a notion of an innate mental language as a means of concept representation.

Instead, experimental concepts are treated semantically as stabilizing structuring of growing sets of data, which are sets of experienced. In the early s, Discourse Representation Theory (DRT) was introduced by Hans Kamp as a theoretical framework for dealing with issues in the semantics and pragmatics of anaphora and tense (Kamp ); a very similar theory was developed independently by Irene Heim ().

The book is for students and researchers in semantics, pragmatics, computational linguistics, and philosophy of language at advanced undergraduate level and above.

Improving the Understandability of Dynamic Semantics: An Enhanced Metamodel for UML State Machines: /ch A clear understanding of the dynamic semantics of languages involved in the representation of behavior is essential for a large and varied audience such as.

Research on the semantics of spatial markers in French is known mainly through Vandeloise’s (, ) work on static prepositions. However, interest in the expression of space in French goes back to the mids and focused first on verbs denoting changes in space, whose syntactic properties were related to specific semantic distinctions, such as the opposition between “movement” and.

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Model-theoretic semantics provides a computationally attractive means of representing the semantics of natural language.

However, the models used in this formalism are static and are usually infinite. Dynamic models are incomplete models that include only the information needed for an application and to. Abstract. Dynamisation in Conceptual Graph Theory has been stimulated by mostly two trends: one inspired by computer science notions of actors and agents and the other one by computational semantics; we focus on the later, following John Sowa’s parallel between Existential Graphs and Discourse Representation Theory or more generally Dynamic Semantics.

Dynamic semantics is a type of semantic theory originally developed in the early s by Irene Heim and Hans Kamp (independently). The basic idea of dynamic semantics is that the meanings of sentences are not propositions but rather functions that alter the context. dynamic semantics and ai-based accounts of discourse.

2 Dynamic Semantics Montague semantics (Montague, ) wasn’t designed to construct logical forms for multi-sentence discourse, but extending it in obvious ways falls short of handling the phenomena we want to analyse.

Consider (1a) again. Appending the logical forms of the clauses to yield.The next phase of the Web, as represented in this book's movement towards the "Semantic Web", lies in encoding properties of and relationships between, objects represented by information stored on the Web. But the larger and more complex the knowledge, the less complete and useful static representations become.
