Abstract: The circuit grammar is a logic grammar developed for knowledge representation of electronic circuits. Knowledge on circuit structures and their functions are coded into the grammar rules. Those grammar rules, when converted into definite clauses, form a logic programme which can parse given circuits and derive electrical behaviour. This paper shows mechanisms for converting circuit grammar rules into definite clauses.

Keywords: circuit grammar; knowledge representation; electronic circuits; definite clause grammar; logic grammar; reasoning-based system; grammar rules.
