Keywords: natural language processing, dynamic systems, chaos, semantics

The paper discusses the possibility for a new approach in natural language processing based on the deterministic chaotic behavior of dynamical systems. The simulation results proved that at the word level the meaning can be modeled dynamically in a unitary way according to the contribution of the component phonemes.
