Abstract

Natural logics are formal logics whose sentences resemble simplified natural language. As such they are suitable for knowledge bases. The offered logical proof rules apply directly to the natural logic sentences, ensuring explainability of query inferences. We describe a natural logic, NaturaLog, suited for ontology-structured knowledge bases, and explain how it can be implemented in a database system for conducting deductive querying.
