Semantic processing is one of the important tasks for natural language processing. Basic to semantic processing is descriptions of lexical items. The most frequently used form of description of lexical items is probably Frames or Objects. Therefore in what form Frames or Objects are expressed is a key issue for natural language processing. A method of the Object representation in Prolog called DCKR will be introduced. It will be seen that if part of general knowledge and a dictionary are described in DCKR, part of context- processing and the greater part of semantic processing can be left to the functions built in Prolog.
