Why not Prolog?
 From wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prolog)

[Prolog is a general purpose logic programming language associated with 
artificial intelligence and computational linguistics.
Prolog has its roots in formal logic, and unlike many other programming 
languages, Prolog is declarative: The program logic is expressed in 
terms of relations, represented as facts and rules. Execution is 
triggered by running queries over these relations.]

Prolog has almost the same syntax of Erlang (the first Erlang 
interpreters have been written in Prolog!).
There are many free Prolog interpreters and even native compilers.
