E. T h e meaning of'fils' is 'son' word(fils,noun,masculine). e. 'fils' is a masculine n o u n . A predicate may take any n u m b e r of arguments (including none at all). This n u m b e r is referred to by talking of the arity of the pre­ dicate. For example, s p o k e n _ i n has an arity of 2, n o u n an arity of 1 and w o r d an arity of 3 . For stylistic variety, predicates will occasionally be referred to as being binary (arity of 2) or ternary (arity of 3). A unary predicate (arity of 1) is often called a property.

Although they vary in terms of the special features offered, nearly all have a c o m m o n core which is some­ times referred to as 'Edinburgh Prolog'. It is this 'standard' Prolog which forms the basis of the following presentation. 1 Facts A Prolog program consists of a n u m b e r of statements defining various relationships which hold between the objects in the area o f interest. These are the assumptions from which the inferences will be d r a w n . Defining relationships in this way is sometimes referred to as ' p r o g r a m m i n g by declaration'.

Spoken_in(Spanish, spain). no The n o refers to this goal not being a consequence of the p r o g r a m . In other words, Prolog assumes that anything it has not been told about does not hold.
