Abstract:

The book presents an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge representation
and the treatment of semantic phenomena of natural language, which is
positioned between artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, and
cognitive psychology. The proposed method is based on Multilayered Extended
Semantic Networks (MultiNets), which can be used for theoretical
investigations into the semantics of natural language, for cognitive
modeling, for describing lexical entries in a computational lexicon, and
for natural language processing (NLP).

Part I deals with fundamental problems of semantic knowledge representation
and semantic interpretation of natural language phenomena. Part II provides
a systematic description of the representational means of MultiNet, one of
the most comprehensive and thoroughly specified collections of relations
and functions used in real NLP applications.

MultiNet is embedded into a system of software tools comprising a workbench
for the knowledge engineer, a semantic interpreter translating natural
language expressions into formal meaning structures, and a workbench for
the computer lexicographer. The book has been used for courses in
artificial intelligence at several universities and is one of the
cornerstones for teaching computational linguistics in a virtual electronic
laboratory.
