haven't a clue.
The fact that there are so many ways of representing such a simple
operation has relevance to the design of command line interfaces to muds.
What is needed is a proper natural language parser capable of
understanding commands typed in normal English. Current NLP technology
doesn't deal with context-dependent abbreviations, though SRI may throw
money at this if anyone's willing to pay for the research.
