Abstract : This paper is about an implemented natural language interface that translates from English into semantic net relations and from semantic net relations back into English. The parser and Companion generator were implemented for two reasons: (a) to enable experimental work in support of a theory of learning by analogy; and (b) to demonstrate the viability of a theory of parsing and generation built on commutative transformations.
