In essence, Computing with phrases (CWW) is a approach of computation during which the gadgets of computation are predominantly phrases, words and propositions drawn from a average language. CWW relies on fuzzy good judgment. In technology there's a deep-seated culture of in accordance even more appreciate to numbers than to phrases. In a basic means, CWW is a problem to this practice. what's no longer widely known is that, this day, phrases are utilized in position of numbers in a wide selection of functions starting from electronic cameras and loved ones home equipment to fraud detection platforms, biomedical instrumentation and subway trains.

CWW bargains a distinct capability—the power to precisiate average language. Unprecisiated (raw) typical language can't be computed with. A key notion which underlies precisiation of that means is that of the which means postulate: A proposition, p, is a restrict at the values which a variable, X—a variable that's implicit in p—is allowed to take.

CWW has a huge ramification for arithmetic. Addition of the formalism of CWW to arithmetic empowers arithmetic to build mathematical ideas of computational difficulties that are said in a normal language. conventional arithmetic doesn't have this capability.
