Notes

Abstract: This paper presents a natural language interface system to an Internet search engine that provides the following improvements: (1) accepts natural language (English) questions, (2) expands the query, based on a word sense disambiguation method, and (3) uses a new lexical operator to post-process the documents retrieved for extracting only the part of a document that is relevant to a query. The system was tested on 100 queries of which 50 were adopted from the TIPSTER topics collection, provided at the 6th Text Retrieval Conference (TREC-6) and 50 were selected from among the queries submitted by users to an existing Web search engine. The results obtained demonstrate a substantial increase in both the precision and the percentage of queries answered correctly, while the amount of text presented to the user is reduced in comparison with the current Internet search engine technology.
