English Abstract

The present invention provides methods, systems and software for: rule-based transforming of an initial thesaurus-like organized input lexicon into a rule-based lexical ontology containing inflectional forms of words represented by means of syntactical-complements- joining sets the elements of which are words that act as hidden semantic intermediaries mediating the syntactic pairing of words in a sentence; rule-based generating of sentences from sequences of interdependent instructions for syntactic pairing of grammatically correct inflectional forms of words having at least one semantic intermediary common to specified by said instructions pairs of syntactical- complements-joining sets representing said pairs of grammatically correct inflectional forms in said rule-based ontology; and, generating of visual and audio compositions representing said generated sentences.


French Abstract

La présente invention fournit des procédés, des systèmes et des logiciels pour : une transformation basée sur des règles d'un lexique d'entrée organisé tel qu'un thésaurus initial en une ontologie lexicale à base de règles contenant des formes fléchies de mots représentés par l'intermédiaire d'ensembles de jonctions-compléments-syntaxes, les éléments desquels sont des mots qui agissent comme intermédiaires sémantiques cachés réalisant l'appariement syntaxique des mots dans une phrase; une génération basée sur des règles des phrases à partir des séquences d'instructions interdépendantes en vue d'un appariement syntaxique des formes fléchies grammaticalement correctes de mots ayant au moins un intermédiaire sémantique commun spécifié par lesdites instructions de paires d'ensembles de jonction-compléments-syntaxes représentant lesdites paires de formes fléchies grammaticalement correctes dans ladite ontologie basée sur des règles et, la génération de compositions visuelles et audio représentant lesdites phrases générées.


Note: Claims are shown in the official language in which they were submitted.

CLAIMS:
The embodiments of the invention in which an exclusive property or privilege
is claimed are
defined as follows:

1. A sentence generating method of sentence generating comprising:
(a) rule-based transforming of an initial input set of part of speech tagged
words represented by
means of part of speech tagged synonyms and antonyms representing the part of
speech
specific senses of said words into a rule-based ontology set wherein
inflectional forms of
said words are represented by means of syntactical-complements-joining sets
the elements of
which are words that act as hidden semantic intermediaries mediating the
syntactic pairing
of said words;
(b) and, rule-based generating of a two-word sentence or a two-word phrase
from a pairing
instruction for performing a set intersection operation on two syntactical-
complements-
joining sets, said sets representing two inflectional forms of words in said
rule-based
ontology set, and if said two syntactical-complements-joining sets contain a
common
semantic intermediary element, then generating said two-word sentence or said
two-word
phrase by pairing to each other said two inflectional forms of words.

2. The method of claim 1 wherein said rule-based transforming of said initial
input set of words
into said rule-based ontology set comprises rule-based transforming of input
sets of
synonyms and antonyms representing a source word into derivative output sets
of words,
said source word and said synonyms and antonyms having rule-based derived part
of speech
composite tags.

3. The method of claim 2 wherein said rule-based transforming of said initial
input set of words
into said derivative sets comprises: rule-based transforming of input sets of
synonyms and
antonyms into temporary casualty output sets; and, rule-based transforming of
temporary
casualty input sets into temporary multiple-casualty output sets.

4. The method of claim 1 wherein said rule-based transforming of said initial
input set into said
rule-based ontology set further comprises transforming sequences of derivative
sets
representing the connectivity between pairs of syntactically compatible words
into
prototypes for identifying the elements of said syntactical-complement-joining
sets that act
-31-

as hidden semantic intermediaries mediating the syntactic pairing of said
syntactically
compatible words.

5. The method of claim 4 wherein said transforming of said sequences of
derivative sets into
said prototypes comprises the forming of two component identification
structures of a binary
structure said binary structure representing the connectivity between pairs of
syntactically
compatible words and said forming performed in accordance with requirements
that satisfy
assumptions inspired by neural patterns of cortical organization.

6. The method of claim 4 wherein said transforming of said sequences of
derivative sets into
said prototypes further comprises the steps of identifying a set of words that
can act as
hidden semantic intermediaries.

7. The method of claim 4 wherein said transforming of said sequences of
derivative sets into
said prototypes further comprises: forming successor identification
structures; analyzing the
merits of said successor identification structures and based on said
analyzing, selecting an
identification structure to be used as a designated for the identification of
semantic
intermediaries prototype.

8. The method of claim 1 wherein said transforming of said initial input set
into said rule-based
ontology set further comprises the rule-based generating of said rule-based
ontology set, said
generating performed by applying prototypes designated for the identification
of semantic
intermediaries.
