In response to the need for reliable results from natural language processing, thisbook presents an original way of decomposing a language(s) in a microscopicmanner by means of intra/inter‑language norms and divergences, goingprogressively from languages as systems to the linguistic, mathematical andcomputational models, which being based on a constructive approach areinherently traceable. Languages are described with their elements aggregating orrepelling each other to form viable interrelated micro‑systems. The abstractmodel, which contrary to the current state of the art works in intension, isexploitable for all sorts of applications where only the elements which are usefulare assembled in the micro‑systems needed to solve the problem in hand.Numerous definitions, schemata and examples involving many languages makethe book accessible to students as well as academics and industrial researcherslooking for new theories and methodologies for representations and problemsolving wherever language and quality meet.
