@TECHREPORT{AICPub653:1983, AUTHOR={Martin, Paul and Appelt, Douglas and Pereira, Fernando}, TITLE={Transportability and Generality In A Natural-Language Interface System}, ADDRESS={333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025}, INSTITUTION={AI Center, SRI International}, MONTH={Nov}, NUMBER={293}, YEAR={1983}, ABSTRACT={This paper describes the design of a transportable natural language (NL) interface to databases and the constraints that transportability places on each components of such a system. By a transportable NL system, we mean an NL processing system that is constructed so that a domain expert (rather than an AI or linguistics expert) can move the system to a new application domain. After discussing the general problems presented by transportability, this paper describes TEAM (an acronym for Transportable English database Access Medium), a demonstratable prototype of such a system. The discussion of TEAM shows how domain-independent and domain-dependent information can be separated in the different components of an NL interface system, and presents one method of obtaining domain-specific information from a domain expert.} }
