As natural language communication may be characterized by the apparent ease and efficienc~, however, with which ill-defined concepts and fuzzy meanings are being intended and expressed by speakers, identified and understood by hearers, and successfully used by speakers /hearers in performing inferences of some not necessarily logical sort, it is argued here, that any non-trivial simulation of processes of cognition and/or natural language comprehension will have to provide some means of dynamic knowledge representation which permits to account more satisfactorily for one or the other aspect raised above.
