Matching 2 words in a sentence
 
 

Hi , I am new to AIML., Is it possible to extract 3 words from a complete sentence
Ex : I want to rent a house in Dubai

Here I need to extract “rent”, “house”, “dubai” into different variable

Just bear in mind that the above AIML category will also match other inputs, such as:

“I want to fly a plane in Tokyo”
“I want to fish for a bass in Australia”
“I want to learn acting so that I can win a prize for best male lead and then throw a party for all of the other actors in the movie”

If you want to isolate those exact words, another approach should be used, but before I can advise you I need more details about exactly what you’re trying to accomplish.

On the other hand, if those words are just a few example of words that you need to extract, then perhaps another way yet may be necessary. But again, I need more information on what you’re trying to do.

Totally agree that my example was very generic, but if you are learning AIML I think it gets you closer to a working solution

Longer term, I’d favour adding sets which provide a more restricted view on the terms for each *, so that it becomes


I want to <set>action</set> a <set>mode</mode> in <set>location</location></pattern>

Where
action = book, buy,  hire etc
model = ticket, flight, boat, train, car etc
location = Tokyo, Sydney, Edinburgh, etc

Then you’d want to srai “I want to” to make the sentene structure more generic too I think

But as you quite rightly state, you’d need a lot more info to truly build an accurate grammar

Not throwing stones here, Keith. your suggestion is spot on for a beginner to learn the simple stuff. I just wanted to point out that this could be more complex than one who is new to the field might expect. wink

Yes Correct smile There will be different words also in the place of * so in this case what will be the approach.
Thanks for the reply smile
