This book examines key issues in designing semantics-oriented natural language processing systems. A broad conceptual framework for describing structured meanings of NL-texts is obtained by defining a new class of formal languages called standard knowledge languages (SK-languages) using a system theoretical approach. Readers will gain knowledge of these languages and will learn a way of building semantic representations using them.With extensive use of examples and illustrations to clarify complex material and demonstrate practical applications, generous historical and bibliographical notes, end-of-chapter exercises, and glossaries, this book will serve as an ideal graduate-level textbook, as well as a good reference for researchers and practitioners who deal with the various problems involving semantics of natural language texts.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book is focused on two areas of research. First of all, it offers theoretical insights into a recent research program concerned with the development of formal models and methodologies . . Second, and from a practical perspective, it puts forward efficient tools to develop semantic technologies . . The book provides interesting theoretical and practical guidance for overcoming the problems associated with the design of semantics-oriented natural language processing systems in different real-world fields, being thus a valuable source for experienced researchers . ." (Catalin Stoean, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1195, 2010)
