  • Conceptual Role Sema
  • According to Conceptual Role Semantics ('CRS'), the meaning of a representation is the role of that representation in the cognitive life of the agent, e.g. in perception, thought and decision-making. (nyu.edu)
  • syntactic
  • Just as generative syntax posits a finite set of syntactic categories and rules for combining them, so, too, does Conceptual Semantics posit 'a finite set of mental primitives and a finite set of principles of mental combination' governing their interaction (Jackendoff 1990: 9). (wikipedia.org)
  • theories
  • For example, the difference between teleological and informational theories has no impact on any issue in linguistic semantics. (nyu.edu)
  • Semantics as a field of study also has significant ties to various representational theories of meaning including truth theories of meaning, coherence theories of meaning, and correspondence theories of meaning. (wikipedia.org)
  • Classic theories in semantics (in the tradition of Alfred Tarski and Donald Davidson) have tended to explain the meaning of parts in terms of necessary and sufficient conditions, sentences in terms of truth-conditions, and composition in terms of propositional functions. (wikipedia.org)
  • tenets
  • However, in the opinion of a majority of psychiatrists, the tenets and practices of general semantics are not an effective way of treating patients with psychological or mental illnesses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Simulink
  • This set of examples shows different types of Simulink® Subsystems and what semantics are used when simulating these Subsystems. (mathworks.com)
  • meanings
  • The second project, metaphysical semantics, is one of investigating the fundamental nature of meaning, especially what it is about a person that gives his words or thoughts whatever meanings they have in the first place. (nyu.edu)
  • Conceptual semantics is compositional, in that the meanings of phrases, clauses, and sentences can be determined from the lexical concepts that make them up. (wikipedia.org)
  • The basic idea of distributional semantics can be summed up in the so-called Distributional hypothesis: linguistic items with similar distributions have similar meanings. (wikipedia.org)
  • language
  • In the philosophy of language, semantics and reference are closely connected. (wikipedia.org)
  • Jackendoff has claimed that the goal of conceptual semantics is to investigate: "…how linguistic utterances are related to human cognition, where cognition is a human capacity that is to a considerable degree independent of language, interacting with the perceptual and action systems as well as language. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lexical semantics looks at how the meaning of the lexical units correlates with the structure of the language or syntax. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cognitive semantics holds that language is part of a more general human cognitive ability, and can therefore only describe the world as people conceive it. (wikipedia.org)
  • In particular, in the case of compilation of a programming language, soundness and completeness together mean that the compiled program behaves accordingly to the high-level semantics of the programming language. (wikipedia.org)
  • seeks
  • By contrast, cognitive semantics seeks to capture the full range of grammatical moods by also making use of the notions of framing and mental spaces. (wikipedia.org)
  • General semantics is a self improvement and therapy program begun in the 1920s that seeks to regulate human mental habits and behaviors. (wikipedia.org)
  • By making it a 'mental' habit to find and keep one's bearings among the ordered stages, general semantics training seeks to sharpen internal orientation much as a GPS device may sharpen external orientation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Identification prevents what general semantics seeks to promote: the additional cortical processing experienced as a delay. (wikipedia.org)
  • simpler
  • Simpler non-compositional models fail to capture the semantics of larger linguistic units as they ignore grammatical structure and logical words, which are crucial for their understanding. (wikipedia.org)
  • expressions
  • Action entities can directly represent programs' semantics by describing possible program behaviors or represent, in a more indirect way, the impact that individual pieces of a program, like statements or expressions, have on the semantics of the program as a whole. (wikipedia.org)
  • Retrieval
  • The papers are organized in several sessions and tracks: Digital Libraries, Information Retrieval, Linked and Social Data, Metadata and Semantics for Open Repositories, Research Information Systems and Data Infrastructures, Metadata and Semantics for Agriculture, Food and Environment, Metadata and Semantics for Cultural Collections and Applications, European and National Projects. (springer.com)
  • proceedings
  • This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th Metadata and Semantics Research Conference, MTSR 2016, held in Göttingen, Germany, in November 2016. (springer.com)
  • define
  • One of the main goals of style sheet languages like CSS is to separate the syntax used to define structured data from the syntax endowed with presentation semantics that is used to render the data in various ways. (wikipedia.org)
  • Introduction
  • Part II is an introduction to the semantics of imperative languages with an emphasis on applications like compilers and program analysers. (springer.com)
  • Linguistic Semantics: An Introduction. (wikipedia.org)
  • After partial launches under the names human engineering and humanology, Polish-American originator Alfred Korzybski (1879-1950) fully launched the program as general semantics in 1933 with the publication of Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics. (wikipedia.org)
  • data
  • With the Web serving as a huge worldwide data repository, issues related to data semantics (familiar to database modelers since the 1970s) have again become of paramount importance. (springer.com)
  • Atomic semantics is a term which describes a type of guarantee provided by a data register shared by several processors in a parallel machine or in a network of computers working together. (wikipedia.org)
  • fail
  • General semantics postulates that most people "identify," or fail to differentiate the serial stages or "levels" within their own neuro-evaluative processing. (wikipedia.org)
  • general
  • In Science and Sanity, general semantics is presented as both a theoretical and a practical system whose adoption can reliably alter human behavior in the direction of greater sanity. (wikipedia.org)
  • While Korzybski considered his program to be empirically based and to strictly follow the scientific method, general semantics has been described as veering into the domain of pseudoscience. (wikipedia.org)
  • Starting around 1940, university English professor S. I. Hayakawa (1906-1992), speech professor Wendell Johnson, speech professor Irving J. Lee, and others assembled elements of general semantics into a package suitable for incorporation into mainstream communications curricula. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Institute of General Semantics, which Korzybski and co-workers founded in 1938, continues today. (wikipedia.org)
  • General semantics as a movement has waned considerably since the 1950s, although many of its ideas live on in other movements, such as neuro-linguistic programming and rational emotive behavior therapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Briefly explained, autoassociative memory retrieves previously stored representations that most closely conform to any current incoming pattern (level II in the general semantics diagram) arriving from the senses. (wikipedia.org)
  • name
  • The name "Jody's Powerbill", often confused with "The Semantics", was a name that Folds had suggested for the trio which they didn't use. (wikipedia.org)
  • After a trip to Los Angeles and changing their name to "The Semantics", the trio developed a buzz within the major labels which eventually brought John Kalodner of Geffen Records to Nashville, Tennessee for a showcase and the band ended up signing with him. (wikipedia.org)
