  摘要:本文首先阐释了概念空间、语言概念空间和自然语言空间的含义,从而说明HNC理论的基本定位:仅研究从自然语言空间到语言概念空间的映射。这一映射涉及两个基本理论问题,一是建立语言概念空间的概念基元符号体系,二是建立语言概念空间的语句基元符号体系。文中对这两个符号体系作了系统的阐释,并在这个基础上提出了句类表示式、语句表示式及语句格式的概念。最后,结合许嘉璐先生最近提出的关于中文信息处理第二战役的设想,概述了作者关于自然语言处理的一些基本看法。

Abstract: This paper clarifies the implications of the Concept Space, the Linguistic-Concept Space and the Natural Language Space, and indicates the basic target of the HNC theory, i.e. to study only the mapping from the Natural Language Space to the Linguistic Concept Space(LCS). This mapping involves two primary theoretic problems. One is to build the symbolic system of the concept primitives in the LCS. Another is to build the symbolic system of the sentence primitives in the LCS. We explain the two symbolic systems thoroughly, and then present three important concepts based on them, i.e., the representation of sentence categories, the representation of sentence, and the format of sentences. Finally, referring to the strategy presented by Prof.Xu Jialu toward the second stage of the research on Chinese information processing, we give out some basic ideas on the natural language processing.
