Gellish Syntax and Contextual Facts



This standard defines the Gellish Expression Format for the definition of Data Exchange Message files. It also defines the Gellish collection of Contextual Facts, which provide a means to specify a detailed context for each expression to enable a precise interpretation of the expressions. Thus the document defines a native Gellish Formal Language syntax.

The format defines the structure and components of expressions of the variants of the Gellish family of formalized languages, such as Formal English, Formal Dutch and any other formalized natural language variant. It also allows for a combination of formalized languages. It is preferably encoded in UTF-8 thus allowing for any language and can be expressed in CSV, JSON or other basic formats. Furthermore it can be used for expressions in any language that is based on RDF.
Files and messages in this format are suitable for the storage and exchange of any kind of idea or fact or question that is expressed in a Gellish formalized language.
