Summary: The aim of this project is to study the main determinants of relationship between knowledge, cognition, communication and space. The stress is on the research of the following determinants and their functions: language (rules of natural and formal languages), space (models of space, social and symbolic organisation), time (social and historical time) and museum objects (natural and historical objects). The main parts of the project are: models of knowledge and cognition systems; structure and organization of knowledge from the 1st to the 8th grade of primary school (the analysis of corpus of primary school textbooks); theoretical models of knowledge representation and organization in museums; development and future of art museums and galleries in Zagreb; algorithmisation of language rules; model of morphological knowledge of Croatian language; syntax analysis model of contextual languages.

Keywords: knowledge, cognition, representation, communication pattern, space, context, language, syntax, morphology, rules, algorithm, museum object, museum, museology, corpus

Research goals: The main aims of this project are: a) to study epistemological structure of the object of information science, that is the structure of knowledge (space and time determinants of symbolic objects), cognitive system (social and historical determinants of cognitive subjects), communication patterns (language and technological determinants of exchange of knowledge) and interfunctional relations and links that take part in representation, organization and exchange of knowledge; b) to study the structure, presentation and development of pupils' knowledge based on the corpus of primary school textbooks; c) to establish theoretical principles of museology and its place in information science; d) to describe linguistic intuition in order to find linguistic rules; e) to describe linguistically the morphology of the Croatian language by applying a two-level model; f) to develop a universal procedure of syntactic analysis of contextual languages. The expected results are the following: establishing of determinants of different types of knowledge, composing a dictionary of concepts which pupils should be able to adopt during the first eight years of their primary education; recognizing the basic sentence constructions in order to present primary school knowledge; definig of theoretical models of representation and organization of knowledge in museums, formalization of tacit language knowledge, implementation of syntactic analysis model over the whole class of contextual and context-free languages.
