[4Pin1-32] Associating semantic structure in metaphor comprehension

as a finding indeterminate natural transformation

〇Miho Fuyama1, Hayato Saigo2 (1. Tamagawa university, 2. Nagahama Institute of Bio-Science and Technology)

Keywords:Metaphor, Meaning, Category theory, Natural transformation

In the present paper, we propose a new theory named ``Theory of inderterminate natural transformation(TINT)'' to investigate the processes of creating meanings as association relationships between images, focusing on the metaphor comprehension as an example. TINT models the meaning creation as a constructing indeterminate natural transformation which is defined by the category theory and stochastic processes.This theory allows us to represent structure-structure interactions between the meaning of target and source of metaphor.
