Neophilologica, T. 23 (2011), s. 249-258
The aim of this paper is to discuss one of the methods applicable in description of the representation
of the world in language, that is object modeling.
The author emphasizes the notion of the Hierarchical Semantic Network proposed by A.M. C ollin
and M.R. Quillian in the 1960’s which constitutes an example of the way of representing knowledge
in the memorization process. These networks will be described in parallel with a class of structures
of the data easily applicable to computer processing.
This analysis is a starting point for elaborating on the notion of the class of objects. Its specificities,
content and relations with others groups of the same type, the property of the semantic inheritance
will show to what extent the notion is useful word sense disambiguation according to W. Banyś
and also in the learning process.
