Abstract

This paper demonstrates the use of the designed human language Lojban as an interface to a first order logic reasoner. We report on an implementation of a system in which representation of knowledge is constructed from and queried through natural language dialogue with a user, delivering answers verbally through speech synthesis. The implementation handles issues with extracting this representation from Lojban text, storing the resulting information in a logic-based form, and inferring and phrasing appropriate Lojban answers to user queries.
