The Mutual Relation of Natural and Formalized Language

(Original title: K vzájomnému vzťahu prirodzeného a formalizovaného jazyka)
Filozofia, 28 (1973), 3, 270-276.
Type of work: Papers and Discussions
Publication language: Slovak
The paper starts from the idea that in contrast to the artificial significative systems the natural language cannot be taken for a purely significative creation, even if the elements of significative capacity cannot be denied. The language of science as a whole is influenced by the natural language and by formalized systems. From this point of view the paper polemizes with the opinion that the formalized languages present the exact explication of the non-exact expressions of the natural language expecially of the logical conjunctions, as well as with the opinion that the formalization will adequately ellucidate the introduction and use of theoretical terms in natural sciences.
