Processing natural language instructions for execution of robotic tasks has been regarded as a means to make more intuitive the interaction with robots. This paper is focused on the applications of natural language processing in manipulation, specifically on the problem of recovering from the instruction the information missing for the manipulation planning, which has been traditionally assumed to be available for instance via pre-computed grasps or pre-labeled objects. The proposed approach
