Natural Language Is a Representational Language

Lucja Iwanska

The paper proposes to view natural language as a representational language. It discusses a number of highly desirable representational and inferential characteristics unique to natural language. They include: great expressiveness combined with computational tractability, rich structure, exploitation of logical contradiction and logical redundancy, inherent underspeci-ficity and context-dependency, and facilitating learning.
