Summary

Lexical Ontological Semantics (LOS) introduces ontological methods into lexical semantic studies with the aim to give impetus to various fields of endeavours which envision and model the semantic network of a language. LOS provides a cognition-based computation-oriented framework in which nouns and predicates are described in terms of their semantic knowledge, and models the mechanism in which the noun system is coupled with the predicate system. It expands the scope of lexical semantics, updates methodologies to semantic representation, guides the construction of semantic resources for natural language processing, and develops new theories for human-machine interactions and communications.
