Abstract : The report concerns research toward the design of natural language automatic fact retrieval systems for command and control applications. The difficulties of the problem are discussed and a research strategy formulated. A discussion is then given of the possible roles of syntactic information in sentence processing, and the Harvard computer program for syntatic analysis is described. Mathematical network models are developed for sentence retrieval using word associations. Finally, a procedure for testing the utility of syntactic information in retrieval applications is presented.
