This could be neat, because you could store the command list as a constant somewhere that is populated during run-time with all the commands that are contained inside a particular module. ie. Put each command inside its own file with a list of synonyms as one of the variables, then dynamically import it and populate the COMMAND_LIST dictionary with its synonyms and function. Just a fun thought. :D

COMMAND_LIST = {
'give': give,
'provide': give,
'yield': give,
}
def error_cmd(*args):
raise ValueError('Not a valid command. Valid commands include: {0}'.format(COMMAND_LIST.keys()))
def give(*args): # just take in anything and manually process it
# Example:
# something = 'money', to = 'to', someone = 'vendor'
something = None
someone = None
try:
something, to, someone = args
if to != 'to':
raise ValueError
except ValueError:
raise ValueError('Invalid Syntax: give <something> to <someone>')

# take scroll; item = 'scroll', from = 'from', someone = 'vagrant'

# Example:
# item = 'apple'

Perhaps store the functions of the game in a yaml file to (a) reduce the amount of classes with the same name [Tile] and (b) make maintainability a bit easier. Different user's additions could be stored in different yaml files that described the dungeon in a human-readable way.

This would more or less be the same as what you've already got in place. :D

class Handler(do):
# Examples:
# give money to vendor
# take scroll
# eat apple
# construct the action, subject, preposition, and object
