Abstract : This report lists and describes the new linguistic information which has been implemented in the TERSE(Text Reduction System) system. The software for this deliverable has been delivered and is present on the Symbolics workstation at NRL. The TERSE system contains a knowledge base called data structures that contains all the definitions for the structures that hold information formats. In addition to this, there is one file of lisp code which is called 'makefacts.lisp'. This file contains the code to begin processing a file containing a listified representation of information formats. One message per file read in from this file then other procedures attached to the actual data structures are called from this top level routine. Information formats are basically made up of formats, connectives, semantic category entries. All of these elements explicitly appear in the following diagram of the KEE knowledge base datastructures. However, in the knowledge base there are some additional elements. These elements are arranged in conjunction with the standard formats, connectives, and entries in a hierarchical manner. Keywords: Artificial intelligence. (sdw)
