Spinoza II: Conceptual Case-Based Natural Language Analysis
This paper presents the theoretical changes that have developed in Conceptual Dependency Theory and their ramifications in computer analysis of natural language. The major items of concern are: the elimination of reliance on "grammar rules" for parsing with the emphasis given to conceptual rule based parsing; the development of a conceptual case system to account for the power of conceptualizations; the categorization of ACT's based on permissible conceptual cases and other criteria. These items are developed and discussed in the context of a more powerful conceptual parser and a theory of language understanding.
