Description In this paper, we recall the historical perspectives of the Ordered-Triple Theory of Language (OTT) whose authors are Materna, Pala and Svoboda. The Ordered-Triple Theory, as the title suggests captures three fundamental components of a language system, i.e. syntax, semantics and pragmatics, and is fully comparable with similar linguistic theories. It became a starting point for further interconnection of logic, linguistics and informatics thanks to the intensive mutual cooperation of Pala and Materna at the newly established Faculty of Informatics from 1995. We show the subsequent milestones related to OTT and its realisation by means of the transparent intensional logic (TIL) in relation to the natural language processing (primarily Czech).
