Abstract

We present an approach to reasoning with knowledge bases comprised of strict and defeasible rules over literals. A controlled natural language is proposed as a human/machine interface to facilitate the specification of knowledge and verbalisation of results. Techniques from formal argumentation theory are employed to justify conclusions of the approach; this aims at facilitating human acceptance of computed answers.
