Abstract : This thesis attempts to clarify some of the difficulties behind evaluating the performance of natural language processors. It also proposes an evaluation method that is designed to be systematic and thorough. The method relies on considering a natural language processor from three viewpoints in the light of several taxonomies of issues relevant to natural language processing. Finally, an evaluation is described of PLANES, a natural language database query system.
