Abstract:

A new data structure developed in connection with a natural language question-answering system is described. The data structure is based upon a new high-order calculus. It allows a great degree of expressiveness and is suitable for extensive logical deduction. The inadequacies of low-order schemes for the representation of natural language information are given. A formal description of the new high-order structure which overcomes these inadequacies is then presented along with the properties that make it more suitable and attractive for machine processing of natural language information.
