Abstract:

The examples described have been chosen to be types that commonly occur, so that rules needed to understand them can also be used to understand a much wider ranges of novel language. Ultimately the power of systems will depend on the sheer amount of knowledge they have, knowledge which can be used as the base domain for new metaphors, and schematas that can be used to build yet more schematas. Therefore, to really achieve something resembling common sense, there will have to be exercise of rules on whatever of information is available building a yet larger base on which the rules can operate recursively.
