Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) The logic and emotion are originally an inseparable function of survival instinct of living creatures; the emotion developed as a pattern recognition between sensory inputs and genetic memories, and the logic as a trigger for an action resulted from a mathematical operation of input stimuli. Higher creatures became able to acquire and accumulate post-natal memories, and to establish memory system corresponding to the changing world. Since humans acquired a digital coding mechanism, "language", phenotypical linguistic expressions can substitute all of their sensory inputs, memories and behavioral decisions. As natural and artificial languages are both digital and therefore phenotypes, it is necessary to look into neutral structure of language processing unit in order to investigate the logic and emotion behind language. The author proposes 3 neural (physiological) models. Respecting logic as the function of survival instinct, these neural models correspond to 3 stages of evolution, a reflection model with consolidated logic/emotion and without intelligence (i.e. postnatal memorization), and adaptation model with separated logic and emotion and with intelligent memories, and a human linguistic information processing model with digital encoding/decoding. With such evolutionary perspective, language specific characteristics can easily be identified.
