The Q & A sets are evaluated and entailed propositions are discovered. Statements that can be inferred from the entailed propositions are identified. Semantic and pragmatic relationships between statements are uncovered.

SAMPLE TRIAL TRANSCRIPT

MR. GOLDBERG: Okay. And other than that, do you have any other specific recollections in terms of the types of shoes?

MR. Poser: Umm, he bought--he liked to buy dress casual shoes, not shoes to wear with jeans and so on.

MR. GOLDBERG: Even though--well, did you recognize that he had some type of celebrity status when you first started selling to him?

MR. Poser: Yes, I did.

MR. GOLDBERG: Even though he had some type of celebrity status, did you--considering that he had that status, did you somehow also memorize the occasions when you sold him shoes and what you sold him?

MR. Poser: No.

MR. GOLDBERG: All right. Now, during the time period that you had sold shoes to Mr. Simpson, was Bloomingdales one of the forty stores that sold Bruno Magli Lorenzo shoes?
