voice commands, would help users with managing and querying their personal calendar by Vietnamese

analyzing syntax and semantics of Vietnamese commands and questions. The syntactic and semantic
processing of Vietnamese sentences is solved by using DCG (Definite Clause Grammar) and the methods of
formal semantics. This is the first system in this field of voice application, which is equipped an effective
semantic processing mechanism of Vietnamese language. Having been built and tested in PC environment,
our system proves its accuracy attaining more than 91%.
