Criteria for consistent usage of a language are established using a Galois connection between language syntax and language semantics. Solutions to ambiguity, paraphrase, attitude, and other problems concerning the relationship between syntax and semantics are addressed. A general schema for language specification is introduced and algorithms that perform language generation and language analysis are discussed as universal tools defined by the specification schema. Language transformations performed by various kinds of translators are examined and correctness criteria of these tra...
