no.. but fascinating. thanks! I just read the whitepaper pdf: http://www.lazysoft.com/docs/whitepaper/2000amdwhitepaper2.pdf and peeked at the onloine java versoin of hsi first implentation: Sentences It seems like a natural fit for REBOL, offering a tangible approach to the and often promtoed example of dialecting: <quote> sell 500 shares of "Microsoft" if above $130 a share It's not English, even though it sounds like English, Sassenrath said. Indeed, the company's press release describes it as being only English-like. </quote> I had been wonderign how to jump from that charming idea to the reality of implementing it. Simon Williams' Associative Model feels right... Q0: What's wring with this picture? Q1: Is this really new or is he reinventing a wheel with a fresh vocabulary? Q2: Does this tally with the recent detaield discussion rebel database, or is it a fresh approach? ./Jason

Hi Andrew, Well you better read their patent application then I guess :) I like the idea too. Though, I thought their idea was not much different from straight logic theory. Prolog people could possibly confirm or deny this. Brett.
