Paper Abstract

We present a man machine interface in natural language for a Data Base Management System called VORAS, based upon semantics. This DBMS can also be used for knowledge representation, and is well suited to the design of queries in natural language. The system VORAS is an object oriented DBMS developed from a specific model of representation called PDM (Property Driven Model). A user may write a query in natural language. There is no syntaxic level. Most of the analysis is done at a semantic level. Then, it is possible to use a short hand style.
