Mathematical Models for Designing Natural Language Processing Systems as a New Field of Studies for Systems Science
This chapter grounds the necessity of developing new mathematical tools for the design of semantics-oriented natural language processing systems (NLPSs) and prepares the reader to grasping the principal ideas of these new tools introduced in the next chapters. Section 1.1 grounds the expedience of placing into the focus of Systems Science the studies aimed at constructing formal models being useful for the design of semantics-oriented NLPSs. Sections 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 contain the proposals concerning the structure of such mathematical models of several new types that these models promise to become a great help to the designers of semantics-oriented NLPSs. Sections 1.5 and 1.6 jointly give the rationale for the proposed structure of new mathematical models. Section 1.5 states the central ideas of Cognitive Linguistics concerning natural language (NL) comprehension. Section 1.6 describes the early stage of the studies on formal semantics of NL. Section 1.7 sets forth the idea of developing formal systems of semantic representations with the expressive power close to that of NL; this idea is one of the central ones for this monograph.
