  Article:   SEMANTIC REPRESENTATION OF THE QUANTITATIVE NATURAL LANGUAGE SENTENCES.

Authors:  ADRIAN ONEŢ, DOINA TĂTAR.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  In this paper we propose the description of two methods of quan- titative natural language sentences representation with the use of the first order logic. Both of these methods extend the classic first order logic. One of these two methods was introduced by J. Allen [4] who extends the clas- sic logic by admitting sets as objects (method 2). The other method, more restrictive, (introduced by the authors of this paper) extends the quantifer semnifcation - specially the existenţial one - thus the quantifer would be able to express exact quantities (method 1). This method is a specialization of Allen''s method. In the second part of this paper we describe an implementation of the first method by the lambda calculus and also the transformation of these expressions in first order formulas using Prolog predicates.
