Natural language is a rich source of information, with a complex structure and a kaleidoscope of contents. This arises from the flexibility that living languages exhibit in order to reflect the speaker's intention, and also due to communication needs. From computational linguistics, multiple strategies have been developed that allow detecting and interpreting textual contents, but there is an uncovered margin, an interpretive range that remains outside the scope of automatic processing, and that requires rethinking the scope and perspectives of these tools. This chapter aims to show this gap and its implications, exploring dialectical and technical reasons. It also proposes a new perspective of interpretation and scope of textual processing, a sort of thermodynamics of productions that involve the communication of certain types. As part of the scope, there is a bibliographic analysis and a statistical and heuristic exploration of the proposal applied to 20Q game.
