The report covers research and development work done from 1 May 1975 to 1 August 1975 under the Speech Understanding Systems Contract No. N00014-75- C-0533. Areas included in this work are acoustic-phonetics, lexical retrieval, lexical verification, and natural language syntax, semantics, prosodics, and pragmatics. The report consists of two parts -- a brief survey of progress containing a few paragraphs describing the major progress in the individual components of the project, and a Technical Notes section containing detailed specifications of experiments performed, programs implemented, design studies, and, where appropriate, supporting data and appendices. This third QTPR contains such technical notes on handling of time expressions, procedural semantics for the travel budget management system, and control primitives for speech understanding strategies.
