Abstract

This chapter sets forth the basic ideas and components of Integral Formal Semantics (IFS) of Natural Language – a many-component branch both of formal semantics of NL and Computer Science developed by the author of this book. Section 2.1 describes the basic principles of IFS and introduces the notion of a broadly applicable conceptual metagrammar. Section 2.2 shortly characterizes the principal components of IFS. Sections 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, and 2.7 describe a number of the principal components of IFS. These sections contain numerous examples reflecting the different stages of elaborating powerful and flexible formal means for describing semantic structure of NL-texts – sentences and discourses.
