NATURAL LANGUAGE CATEGORY

is a way of classifying things, people or other objects by their semantic structure in categories which are distinct from one another of a specific natural language (such as English) rather than categorizing objects, people or items using an extralinguistic system of classification using the laws of science or logic to place the items into categories.

NATURAL LANGUAGE CATEGORY: "The natural language category implies the languages placed within have been judged on their semantic structure rather than on scientific or logical bases."
