I thought that we were dealing with ontological issues, not NL issues

I'm not sure how one can legitimately claim to be studying Semantics without at least touching on NL.

NL is difficult, it's complicated, but it's essential that the intended real world meaning behind p123(x,y,z) be captured computationally. 

For example p123(x,y,z) could mean "it's possible but unlikely that x has been married to y z times".
