The language is my own invention, which I call "KR"
(for knowledge representation).

There's a KR grammar & lots of examples on my web site.
You can download my Knowledge Explorer program,
which includes a tutorial & complete source code.

  H i Richard,

  Thanks for the info.

  I don't know if you intended your reply to go to the list or not, but I'm
  sure this material will be of interest there, so I've quoted the key part
  below along with a snippet from your version of the DAML ontologies. The
  language [1] you're working on seems very similar to Seth Russell's
  Semenglish [2] and it's great to see that you've put together an application
  that uses it (I believe Seth's Sailor agents [3] understands some
  Semenglish). What language is it written in, btw?

    I just joined this email group, so I haven't seen any of the
    discussion you're talking about.

    However, I've spent a lot of time working on context issues.
    My view of context is a list of Statements (propositions).
    I use an entity-characteristic-proposition hierarchy to
    help organize & visualize the context.  Unlike RDF or other
    XML-style languages, my KR language is English-like.
    Click on "knowledge" below my name to access my web site
    which includes the KR grammar and lots of examples.
