The Logic and Emotion in Natural Language -- On their common root, and the emotion as an origin of concept --
Kimiaki Tokumaru (System Engineer) TL2010-35 NLC2010-14
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The logic and emotion are originally an inseparable function of survival instinct of living creatures; the emotion developed into a pattern recognition between sensory inputs and genetic memories, and the logic a trigger for an action resulted from a mathematical operation between sensory information and memories. Higher creatures became able to acquire and accumulate post-natal memories, and to establish more flexible memory system corresponding to the changing world.
Since humans acquired a digital coding mechanism, namely language, phenotypical linguistic expressions can substitute all of their sensory inputs, memories and behavioral decisions. Natural and artificial languages are both digital and therefore phenotypes. In order to investigate the logic and emotion behind language, it is necessary to look into structure of language producing circuit.
The author proposes 3 neural (physiological) models as such circuits. Respecting logic as the function of survival instinct, these neural models correspond to 3 stages of evolution, namely; a reflection model with consolidated logic/emotion and without intelligence (i.e. postnatal memorization), an adaptation model with separated logic and emotion and with intelligent memories, and a linguistic information processing model with digital encoding/decoding. With such evolutionary perspective, language specific matters can easily be identified.
