The pages linked above are written by Chaumont Devin (, and describe his "Panlingua" theory of natural language and knowledge representation. It appears to be mainly a synthesis of work in semantic networks and linguistics, but may offer new insights and fresh perspectives on the problems of machine understanding and translation.
