Abstract

In this chapter we will continue the analysis of the expressive possibilities of SK-languages. The collection of examples considered above doesn’t demonstrate the real power of the constructed mathematical model. That is why let’s consider a number of additional examples in order to illustrate some important possibilities of SK-languages concerning the construction of semantic representations of sentences and discourses and describing the pieces of knowledge about the world. The advantages of the theory of SK-languages in comparison, in particular, with Discourse Representation Theory, Episodic Logic, Theory of Conceptual Graphs, and Database Semantics of Natural Language are set forth. If the string Expr of a certain SK-language is a semantic representation of a natural language expression T, the string Expr will be called a possible K-representation (KR) of the expression T.
