Dear Sir;
I would like to define a dynamic variable such as clauseX = clauseX(subclauseX,subclauseX).

subclauseX = subclauseX1(phraseX);

Meanwhile, when I use this variable subclauseX1(phraseX) to pick the first result in a loop and I can't add the second result subclauseX2(phraseX,phraseX) and the third subclauseX3(phraseX,phraseX,phraseX) and so on
But the outputs of each cycle in the loop should not exceed the fifth cycle. A notice should be displayed and fail.

test:(string*,string*,string*,string*,string*,phraseX,string*) determ(i,i,i,o,o,o,o).

sent:(string*,string*,clauseX) determ(i,i,o).

test(WLst,XLst, WLst2, XLst2,Phrase).

You said, if I interpret correctly, that you want to check subclauseX1 through sublcauseX5. However, you have ";" (logical OR) where I believe there should be "," (logical AND) so only the first succeeding subclauseXn will be executed.

I have a feeling that you have tried to simplify the problem for the discussion group and may have some typographic errors.

subclauseX = subclauseX1(phraseX) ;
                    subclauseX2(phraseX,phraseX) ;
                    subclauseX3(phraseX,phraseX,phraseX) ;
                    subclauseX4(phraseX,phraseX,phraseX,phraseX) ;

Please try re-stating your question.

I also have problems undestanding the problem.

A "strict" formatting of your code looks like this:

    sent([], _, _) :-

    sent(_, [], _) :-

    sent(WLst, XLst, clauseX(Phrase)) :-
        test(WLst, XLst, WLst2, XLst2, Phrase).

    sent(WLst2, XLst2, clauseX(Phrase)).

The two clauses seems "strange", the variable names implies that it should have been a single clause, but the use of "clauseX(Phrase)" seems to contradict this.
