Abstract:

This report introduces a reimplementation of the ideas for phrasal analysis originally implemented in PHRANWA80 as part of the original Unix Consultant project UCWAC84. The new implementation, ALANA, presents a general algorithm using chart parsing techniques for phrasal analysis. Also presented in this report is a discussion of KODIAK, the new form of representation from UC Berkeley into which ALANA analyzes. We include a description of how language is represented in ALANA and how it ties in with the KODIAK representation model. Finally, we look at how ALANA fits into the new UC, a new implementation of UC using ALANA, KODIAK, and the latest ideas from the UC Berkeley BAIR Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research project on understanding and planning.
