diagrams.html shows a Theory of Mind.

The brain-mind diagram above shows how the English module may
easily co-exist with several other human languages in a Robot AI Mind.
Once the Think module has chosen which language to think in
(perhaps because it is listening to input in a certain language),
the English or other selected module generates and comprehends
sentences of thought in the particular language.

Machine translation (MT) is achievable in a Robot AI Mind
that specializes in a subject area in particular human languages.

The diagram ai4u_157.html is a flowchart of Mind.

// English() is called by Think and in turn calls
// subject-verb-object SVO or another syntax structure.
function English() {  // ATM 12aug2002; or your ID & date.
  if (recon > 0)  Ask();  // If urge to reconnoiter or to learn
  else {  // is positive, then ask a question, but otherwise...
    if (jux == 12) negSVO();  // If verb has 12="not" negative adverb. 
    else SVO();           // otherwise call the "positive" SVO syntax.
    jux = 0;             // Safety measure of resetting "jux" to zero.
  }  // End of _not_ asking a question.
}  // End of English(); return to Think().

    ELSE                 \ If no novelty...
    jux @  12 = IF  \ If negative 12=not adverb,
      negSVO        \ transformation of Chomsky;
      ELSE  SVO     \ the "positive" S-V-O syntax.
    THEN            \ End of test for verb-negation.
  THEN
;  \ Return to the THINK module which calls ENGLISH syntax.

4. ANALYSIS OF THE MODUS OPERANDI

The English module source code shown above is beginning to grow
complex, because the AI Mind must select one of several possible
English syntax structures for a thought about to be generated.

A straightforward syntax module may be selected by default,
while the choice of a more complex transformation may hinge
upon such criteria as how much (full or incomplete) information
is available to the mind trying to generate a thought, or how
a higher deliberative process in the mind may try to couch
or conceal the perhaps limited information to be conveyed.

Higher up in the scale of the mental architecture, the Think
module may be faced with a question of which language to think in.

and troubleshoot programs in artificial intelligence.
