By P. Saint-Dizier

This quantity is a variety of papers provided at a workshop entitled Predicative varieties in usual Language and in Lexical wisdom Bases prepared in Toulouse in August 1996. A predicate is a named relation that exists between a number of arguments. In traditional language, predicates are learned as verbs, prepositions, nouns and adjectives, to quote the main common ones. learn at the id, association, and semantic representa­ tion of predicates in man made intelligence and in language processing is a truly lively examine box. The emergence of recent paradigms in theoretical language processing, the definition of latest difficulties and the real evol­ ution of functions have, actually, motivated a lot curiosity and debate at the position and nature of predicates in naturallangage. From a huge theoret­ ical point of view, the concept of predicate is vital to analyze at the syntax­ semantics interface, the generative lexicon, the definition of ontology-based semantic representations, and the formation of verb semantic periods. From a computational point of view, the thought of predicate performs a cent­ ral position in a couple of functions together with the layout of lexical wisdom bases, the advance of computerized indexing platforms for the extraction of established semantic representations, and the construction of interlingual varieties in computer translation.
