This paper describes D-Script, a language for representing knowledge in artificial intelligence (AI) programs. D-Script contains a powerful formalism for descriptions, which permits the representation of statements that are problematical for other systems. Particular attention is paid to problems of opaque contexts, time contexts, and knowledge about knowledge. The design of a deductive system for this language is also considered.
