question about logic of the sentense

Hi,

My name is saria, Im Ph.D. student, I have some questions I hope someone helps me.
and I hope this is the right place to ask question.

My question is like is there any logic in a sentence or paragraph for understanding which part is general part and which part is specific.
I am searching for finding a logic totally.

Thanks in advance,

Mr_Z ,Many thanks for your help, but still I can not see a logic regarding the general part, specific part. It explains about subject object predictive part of a sentence. I am searching for something like for example in a text DOC, whic part is more general nad jwhich part is more specific. It will help me with topic modeling. I really appreciate it if you have any idea or knowledge just share with me. thanks

I don't know how one could make such a distinction across any given sentence. Some sentences are general, some are specific, some might have both combined.
