Commonsense Knowledge, Ontology and Ordinary Language by Walid S. Saba

By Walid S. Saba

Over twenty years in the past a “quite revolution” overwhelmingly changed knowledge-based techniques in usual language processing (NLP) by means of quantitative (e.g., statistical, corpus-based, desktop studying) tools. even though it is our company trust that basically quantitative ways can't be the single paradigm for NLP, dissatisfaction with simply engineering methods to the development of enormous wisdom bases for NLP are a little bit justified. during this paper we are hoping to illustrate that either tendencies are in part faulty and that the time has come to counterpoint logical semantics with an ontological constitution that displays our common-sense view of the area and how we discuss in traditional language. during this paper it is going to be verified that assuming such an ontological constitution a few demanding situations within the semantics of ordinary language (e.g., metonymy, intensionality, copredication, nominal compounds, etc.) might be competently and uniformly addressed.
