Abstract: Mental Image Directed Semantic Theory (MIDST) has proposed the knowledge representation language Lmd in order to facilitate language-centered multimedia communication between ordinary people and home robots in the daily life. Lmd has employed the ‘tempo-logical connectives (TLCs)’ to represent both temporal and logical relations between two events, and the ‘temporal conjunctions’, a subset of TLCs, have already been applied to formulating natural event concepts, namely, event concepts represented in natural language. This paper presents the theory of TLCs extended for formalizing human intuitive spatiotemporal knowledge and its application to automatic reasoning about space and time expressed in natural language.
