Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the final remarks for the book, which discusses the consequences for syntax, semantics, pragmatics and computational linguistics. It tries to delineate the new goals one should pursue in the light of the results of the book. The book hopes to contribute to the realisation that also in semantics and pragmatics, disambiguation should be in the centre of attention, with lexical semantics and pragmatics having front-line status. A model of production and interpretation of natural language utterances is developed which explains why communication is normally fast and successful. Interpretation is taken to be analogous with visual perception in finding the most probable hypothesis that explains the utterance.

Keywords: computational linguistics; language; pragmatics; semantics; syntax
