I am interested to know if anyone has developed mathematical translation rules that takes English sentences and converts them into equations that produce a sum. Or if someone has done it for another language and an English version of the rules has been done.
It might look something like:
"The raven is a black bird."
"raven = black + bird"
The idea being that you could take a document, use the rules to translate the English sentences into math equations, and distill it down into its informational parts and total them for what the document equaled in information.
So far my net search for this has turned up nothing. I am hoping it is simply because I'm not using the proper termnology when doing my search. If you can tell me the proper termnology for this sort of thing, that would be of great help. Or, better yet, if you could give URLs to where this stuff is located, that would be fantastic!
Thanks in advance!

Of course it's been done. Have you never heard
of computer languages?
They convert language into a mathematical code.

I don't believe this is possible at the present level of technology.

It would make machine translation, for example, very simple and it ain't. Not yet.
Unless you're talking about a simple checksum. That's another story.

black + bird need not equal raven. crows starlings,cowbirds, grackles not to mention several others are all black birds. A language that could be so reduced would be inadequate to the needs of communication.

That's not what he meant.
P.S. this isn't Jeopardy, the reply goes after the question. Top posting disruptes the natural flow of the conversation.

Simple checksum being?

First, I gave the above as an example.
Second, it was meant to illustrate how the sentence could be translated. Yes, I know other birds are also black, but that's not what the sentence provided as information.

Simple checksum being?

An algorithmic device, such as a "check digit" that indicates if a simple transposition or substitution error has occurred in a string of digits.
Speaking of ravens, the Mad Hatter asked "Why is a raven like a writing desk".
Izzy's answer is:
The raven has a secret aerie.
A writing desk is a secretary.

Simple checksum being? Scott Jensen

Sometimes in order to verify that a document has not been altered, the number of each character in the document is used as part of a sum. Any alteration in the document changes the checksum.
