Abstract : Easy English is a simple command language designed to simplify dialogues between man and machine through a remote typewriter console. It is made up of readily recognized sentences of the English language, sentences which any layman might be expected to use in everyday requests for services or articles from a familiar source. Easy English was developed as a command language for retrieval of documents from a computerized data base. It is intended for all information systems using remote typewriter consoles in a conversational mode. The purpose of the Easy English program is to recognize and execute a command expressed by an English sentence. The program presented enables a user to employ the system using the natural language, English. (Author)
