Abstract:

This paper raises two issues that heretofore have not been dealt with in any previous natural language data base query system. These issues arise because of the everpresent need for world knowledge in the understanding of English, and also because of the particular way in which information is stored in a data base. The solutions to these problems described in this paper require only existing state of the art data base technology. Author
