Abstract: This report describes a system of programs which performs
natural language processing based on an underlying language
free (conceptual) representation of meaning. This system is
used to produce sentence paraphrases which demonstrate a form
of understanding with respect to a given context. Particular
emphasis has been placed on the major subtasks of language
analysis (mapping natural language into conceptual
structures) and language generation (mapping conceptual
structures into natural language), and on the interaction
between these processes and a conceptual memory model.
