A big amount of important, `economically relevant' information, is buried within the huge mass of multimedia documents that correspond to some form of `narrative' description. Due to the ubiquity of these `narrative' resources, being able to represent in a general, accurate, and effective way their semantic content - i.e., their key `meaning' - is then both conceptually relevant and economically important.
In this book, we present the main properties of NKRL (`Narrative Knowledge Representation Language'), a language expressly designed for representing, in a standardised way, the `meaning' of complex multimedia narrative documents.
NKRL is a fully implemented language/environment. The software exists in two versions, an ORACLE-supported version and a file-oriented one. Written from a multidisciplinary perspective, this exhaustive description of NKRL and of the associated knowledge representation principles will be an invaluable source of reference for practitioners, researchers, and graduates.
