Abstract

With the advent of the computer era, artificial languages had to be conceived in order to communicate with machines. To exchange this inconvenient means with everyday spoken human utterances, a more intense look at Natural Languages and their formalizations has become necessary. Only a profound understanding of Natural Language fundamentals provides conditions under which the architecture of computer hardware can be developed and adapted to future linguistic requirements. The meaning of the terms “formalization” and “Natural Language” is defined in Sections 1.3 and 1.4. These two preliminary sections also emphasize the importance of recognizing Natural Language phenomena for optimization and rationalization of machineless man-man communication. The requirement of a new and comprehensive approach to formalize Natural Languages by emphasizing isolated instead of agglutinated morphologies is indicated in the last two sections of this introduction.
