    • In this paper, I’ll use the word text to denote any complete utterance, short or long. In a computational context, a text could be a non-interactive document, such as a news article, a legal statute, or a memorandum, that a writer or author has produced for other people and which is to undergo some kind of processing by a computer. Or a text could be a natural-language utterance by a user in a spoken or typewritten interactive dialogue with another person or a computer: a turn or set of turns in a conversation. The term text-meaning, then, as opposed to mere word-meaning or sentence-meaning, denotes the complete in-context meaning or message of such texts at all levels of interpretation including subtext."
