A Principled Framework for Constructing Natural Language Interfaces To Temporal Databases [article]

Ion Androutsopoulos
1996 arXiv   pre-print
Most existing natural language interfaces to databases (NLIDBs) were designed to be used with "snapshot" database systems, that provide very limited facilities for manipulating time-dependent data.  ...  Finally, I present and prove the correctness of a method to translate from TOP to TSQL2, TSQL2 being a temporal extension of the SQL-92 database language.  ...  The work that this thesis reports was supported by a scholarship from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation, to which I am grateful.  ...
