Summary: Discuses semantic networks with labeled links.  Talks about
dictionaries as big sets of words with labeled links to other
words. Studies some psychological protocols of sentence understanding
including word ambiguity resolution.  Suggests that a primarily
semantic approach can work well at this sort of problem.
