What is the equivalent of typing = at the beginning of a line to specify natural language input in WolframScript?

This can be done by using Interpreter with SemanticExpression:

Interpreter["SemanticExpression"]["population of Switzerland"]

It can also be done using SemanticInterpretation (thanks @Bob Hanlon):

SemanticInterpretation["population of Switzerland"]

  • $\begingroup$ @BobHanlon Thanks. Do you know if it is possible to make an alias so there is no need to type the whole function? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ sem[str_String] := SemanticInterpretation[str]; however, the autocompletion essentially does this. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @BobHanlon I don't think there is any autocompletion in the WolframScript command line interpreter. I think your comments are worth a full answer. $\endgroup$
