If VAR’ is np’, then VAR is np, sn, or pn. 8 is of a preliminary kind. It was used in NEWCAT’86 for the automatic time-linear analysis of 221 syntactic constructions of German and 114 of English, complete with LISP source code. It was also used in CoL’89 for 421 syntactic–semantic constructions of English with a sign-oriented, hierarchical semantic analysis. 12 13 There is a convention in Database Semantics that constants are written in lowercase Roman letters, while variables are written in uppercase Roman letters or in lowercase Greek letters.

7 The agent relates the sentence Julia sleeps to the referent provided by contextual recognition. The agent, the language expression, and the referent with its property of sleeping are all part of the real world. The real world is treated as given and there is no attempt to model it set-theoretically or in any other way. Instead, the goal of Database Semantics is to model the agent. This includes the agent’s recognition of the real world at the language and the context level, as well as the agent’s actions – externally relative to the real world, but also internally in the form of such procedures as free association, inference, derivation of plans, wishes, etc.
