How good is Perl for AI?
When I first started reading this post, I saw NLP and thought "Kewl! Neuro Linguistic Programming AI in Perl! Wow!" But then I read on and saw it was "Natural Langage Processing" instead... But AI in Perl is still pretty cool.
I agree that your facility with a General Purpose language can turn out to be more important for any task, than the specific suitability of a language for a task. If the language is powerful enough, you can always mock up your own modules to handle the stuff the language doesnt do naturally.
Good luck and keep us posted!
