DURING the past thirty years great advances have been made towards making the study of language a science, but leading linguists have been mainly concerned with spoken language. There has been a certain tendency to suggest that the study of written documents should always be subsidiary to that of some spoken idiom, or even that it is bound to be less scientific than that of spoken idioms, and perhaps not a proper part of "linguistics" at all.
A new method is presented for simplifying the logical expressions used to represent utterance meaning in a natural language system. 1 This simplification method utilizes the encoded knowledge and the limited inference-making capability of a tax onomic knowledge representation system to reduce the constituent structure of logical expressions.

Ecosystems provide a wide variety of marketable goods, fish and lumber
being two familiar examples. However, society is increasingly recognizing the
myriad functions—the observable manifestations of ecosystem processes such
as nutrient recycling, regulation of climate, and maintenance of biodiversity—
that they provide, without which human civilizations could not thrive. Derived
from the physical, biological, and chemical processes at work in natural ecosystems,
these functions are seldom experienced directly by users of the resource.
Delegation differs from participation in a number of ways:
Many leaders define themselves as participative managers if they delegate tasks to their subordinates more subordinate participation in decision making
