|Abstract||While situation theory and situation semantics (Barwise and Perry 1983) provide an appropriate framework for a realistic model-theoretic treatment of natural language, serious thinking on their `computational' aspects has only recently started (Black 1993, Nakashima et al. 1988). Existing proposals mainly o er a Prolog- or Lisp-like programming environment with varying degrees of divergence from the ontology of situation theory. In this paper, we introduce a computational medium (called BABY-SIT) based on situations (T n and Akman 1994a, T n and Akman 1994b). The primary motivation underlying BABY-SIT is to facilitate the development and testing of programs in domains ranging from linguistics to arti cial intelligence in a uni ed framework built upon situation-theoretic constructs|
