Abstract

The divide between semantics, syntax and logic is absent from Aristotle’s linguistics where the progress from concept to discourse is continuous: concepts linked in pairs constitute judgments, judgments linked make clauses, clauses linked amount to discourse. One’s degree of adhesion to one’s own speech - from simple quotation to expression of personal belief - constitutes a final coating. Aristotle’s linguistics – as it can be abstracted from the six books of the Organon and the Rhetorics - shows the way to an alternative approach to discourse generation dispensing with the obstacles linked with the semantics, syntax, logic divide.
