Abstract:

The subject treated is defined as transmission in which the sense but not the exact symbols of the input message are recoverable. Experimental results in compression by means of minimum redundancy coding are noted, and possible advantages of inexact transmission are discussed. Two forms of inexact transmission were considered in particular Basic English, and Reduced English. Some statistics on these 2 forms were collected and their word entropies were estimated. Author
