Natural Language Understanding for Natural Language Interfaces

In this paper we present the linguistic resources - the text handling and the linguistic processing modules - which have been developed for the MELISSA project using the ALEP platform. In particular, we will see how generic (large scale) grammars involving deep linguistic analysis can be efficiently used for NL interfaces, and how a modularized design of the linguistic resources allows us to deal with the peculiarities of sub-languages, while at the same time keeping the resources as general as possible.
