A new formal approach to semantic parsing of instructions and to file manager design

P. 416-430.
Razorenov A., Fomichov V. A.
During roughly the last seven years, an increase of interest in semantic parsing of instructions in natural language (NL) could be observed. The principal applications of developed algorithms are NL-interfaces for interaction with robots and the personages of videogames, navigation in virtual space, and for developing programs by means of NL. However, the known algorithms are able to process only simple instructions, including one verb with dependent words. This paper has the following theoretical objectives: (a) to formally define in a new way the semantic-syntactic component of a linguistic database and semantic-syntactic structure of a NL-text; (b) to develop a new algorithm of semantic parsing of instructions satisfying the following conditions: (i) being able to process complex NL-instructions including several verbs; (ii) having a relatively compact form due to a high-level angle of look; (iii) being easy to implement and to expand; (iv) finding semantic-syntactic relationships in the input text without constructing a pure syntactic representation of the input text; (v) being convenient for processing texts not only from English but also from Russian, German, French and many other languages. The practical objective of the study was to develop a useful NL-interface to a file manager. A file manager with a NL-interface NLC-2 (Natural Language Commander - Version Two) has been developed. This study is underpinned by the theory of K-representations (knowledge representations) developed by the second author.
