Abstract : In order to generate coherent sentences, a conceptual semantics must be utilized that limits possible conceptual dependencies to statements about the real world. This is done by the creation of semantic files that serve to spell out the defining characteristics of a given concept and enumerate the possibilities for relation with other concepts within the range of conceptual experience. The semantic files are created, in part, from a hierarchical organization of semantic categories. The semantic category is part of the definition of a concept and the information at the nodes dominating the semantic category in the hierarchical tree may be used to fill in the semantic file. This report is concerned with the system of semantic categories and their use in the construction of the semantic files. (Author)
