If you ever wonder why it is so difficult for computers to understand natural language, check out this article by George Miller, creator of WordNet. In one example from his article, he points out that the following couplet from a Robert Frost poem . . .
"But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.". . . has over 3 trillion possible meanings.
