Example: https://www.iep.utm.edu/analytic/ is unambiguous and in many ways allows for a greater complexity than mathematical systems.
[computers have a notoriously difficult time with formal logic computation as computers + compilers themselves are built on 2nd order logic and not 1st order logic: This was necessary to allow for the incredible flexibility of 2nd order logic at the cost of not having the guarantees a closed, simpler 1st order logic system affords.
_However_, because language has ambiguities, there are limits to the application of logical atomism, molecular propositions and molecular facts.
Nevertheless, it is extraordinarily powerful.
A better treatment of the logic of grammar is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systemic_functional_grammar
But formal logic has its place for sure as does standard systems of mathematics with all of their cumbersome, conflicting axiomic systems that at least work within their own domains in a closed universe fashion, even if crossing mathematical domains is problematic. [see Einstein for a 100+ yr old example of crossing axiom domains]
Cute joke but you only made a defense of pragmatism.
I write way better than I talk. When I put my writing through a text-to-speech synthesizer, I wonder, WHO SAID THAT? THAT’S NOT ME.I don’t know who that guy is that writes like that. I just start typing.
I type at 110 wpm, with faster bursts but 110 wpm on avg with 99%+ accuracy. But when I talk, my tongue gets in the way, I think about breathing rate, am I loud or soft? Is my voice going up and down properly to convey whatever emotion is necessary at that moment, etc. I get overwhelmed.Here I said my above into a bad laptop mic. It feels like I’m reading off someone else’s words.
Wait – this worked so I’ll do it again. APPARENTLY, I have an inner British professor in my writing… probably based on Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’s “book”, which I loved since I was a kid.
