'Phis paper describes SemNet the in- ternal Knowledge tepresentation lbr LOLI'I'A I. LOMTA is a large scale Nat- ural Language Engineering (NLE) sys- tem. As such the internal represen- tatiou must be richly expressive, mttu- ral (with respect to Natural Language), and e[[icient. In network representa- tions knowledge is gleaned by travers- ing the graph. The paper introduces two I)rol)crties, (distributedness and non- linearity) of networks which directly re- late to the efficiency by which knowledge is obtained. SemNet is shown to have the specified properties thus distinguish- ing it (in tc'rms of eIli('iency) ms a. suitable representation for large scale NI,E.
