This is a pilot study concerned with developing an inductive method for semantic classification of natural language forms. Consideration is restricted to forms expressing relations between entities or sentence elements. A paraphrasing technique called predication-typing is used to generate the data. This technique consists in paraphrasing sentences or portions of sentences, patterning the paraphrase according to a standard schema so as to incorporate one of a restricted set of expressions called 'predication types' as the connective element between the entities of the relation. The original natural language forms which have prompted selection of particular predication types are called cue forms. They may be then characterized in terms of the variety and frequency of selection of predication types whose use they have prompted in the course of processing a significant quantity of text. This characterization of a cue form in terms of predication types is called its 'semantic spectrum.' 'Semantic groupings' are derived from the semantic spectra which give promise of allowing for a systematic representation of semantic relations between natural language forms in terms of the meanings of the set of predication types as well as in terms of the two semantic dimensions of generality vs. specificity and vagueness vs. definiteness of meaning.

A Study of Method in Language-and-Culture Research. Final Report by Madeleine Mathiot( Book )

2 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A structural approach to the cognitive analysis of language was presented in this research on the language and culture of the papago indians of arizona. In this study, the cognitive patterns of a language were called "themes of the language" and the cognitive patterns of nonverbal culture were called "themes of the culture." Both kinds of themes were considered to be few in number and patterned. The hypothesis of the study was that the theme structure of the language is separate from the theme structure of the culture but is related in varying degrees. This hypothesis is different from the sapir-whorf hypothesis that the cognitive domain of language is directly related to culture and thus influences cultural behavior. This cognitive study of the papago linguistic system stressed the importance of operationally defined conceptual tools and adherence to an established sequence of analytic steps. This approach to the cognitive analysis of language yielded three types of results, namely, (1) analytically derived contents, (2) suggested themes, and (3) a suggestion regarding the relations that make up the theme structure. The results were judged by a criterion of logical reliability, and it was concluded that the three results met the criterion in varying degrees. (Gd)
