Natural Language Understanding (NLU) was one of the mainoriginal goals of artificial intelligence and cognitive science. Thishas proven to be extremely challenging and was nearly abandonedfor decades. We describe an implemented system that supportsfull NLU for tasks of moderate complexity. The natural languageinterface is based on Embodied Construction Grammar andsimulation semantics. The system described here supports humandialog with an agent controlling a simulated robot, but is flexiblewith respect to both input language and output task.
