Generalizing, are you postulating use of a few words (by, of, to,
on, …), perhaps
exactly the set of prepositions, as an NLP representation of binary
to process sentences?
Aren’t there cases where the preposition itself has multiple
meanings? For “of”:
The book of Mark
The Duke of Windsor
Sort of like a bird
Lots of biscuits
A cause of global warming
These examples seem to display a diversity of meanings. Why
approach make it easy to handle these relationships? Similar
about the other prepositions would also surface IMHO after
[MW] I was just being lazy. If I were
working this out properly (as we have in ISO 15926) I would have a set of role
terms that were properly defined. I was only trying to make a point about
understandability of the binary form, which need be no harder than an n-ary
form if you present it sensibly.
