This publication introduces a conception, Naive Semantics (NS), a conception of the information underlying average language knowing. the fundamental assumption of NS is that realizing what a observe ability is not diversified from understanding anything, in order that there's no distinction in kind of cognitive illustration among lexical semantics and ency clopedic wisdom. NS represents observe meanings as common sense wisdom, and builds no distinctive illustration language (other than components of first-order logic). the assumption of educating desktops universal feel wisdom originated with McCarthy and Hayes (1969), and has been prolonged through a few researchers (Hobbs and Moore, 1985, Lenat et aI, 1986). common sense wisdom is a suite of naive ideals, now and then obscure and erroneous, in regards to the method the area is based. frequently, notice meanings were considered as criterial, as giving fact stipulations for club within the periods phrases identify. the speculation of NS, in determining note meanings with common-sense wisdom, sees be aware meanings as ordinary descriptions of sessions of items, instead of as criterial descriptions. hence, reasoning with NS represen tations is probabilistic instead of monotonic. This publication is split into components. half I elaborates the speculation of Naive Semantics. bankruptcy 1 illustrates and justifies the speculation. bankruptcy 2 information the illustration of nouns within the thought, and bankruptcy four the verbs, initially released as "Commonsense Reasoning with Verbs" (McDowell and Dahlgren, 1987). bankruptcy three describes sort varieties, that are naive constraints on noun representations.
