Whether you like it or not, NL is based on recursion and context sensitivity. Not only that, thinking is esetablished before learning a NL. All animals thinki one way or another. Natural langauges should be semantically analyses which is not syntax parsing. You have snatched the term from the lingusits, you have robbed library scientists of theri foremer fields called iundexing and building thesauri and all other scientists preparing nomenclatures. MT people robbed translators from their core job - aliognment of a pair of statements verfified against realiyt, not just the dicitonaries - that is rubbuish, that is what peopőle whoö do notm undrstand a language in all directiosns (up and dond and acfross your ontologies) and as a rsult notw thy sepnd 90 pewrcent of theri time by coping with variousa software to translate fro instance pick up basketball into another languiage with terms thatz canniot be tr5anslated without experience of basketball in both countries - of ths same sort, etc.

Hi Len --
The problem with the "syllogisms will never work" argument is that, if you allow them to be recursive, they have Turing machine power. That means that they can compute anything that can be computed.
At a more specific level, you can do useful real world computations with syllogisms. Please see:

I came across this article while using Twine. This sounds a lot like some of the discussions on this forum. Although I don't have a particular position on the issue, I am very interested in comments.
