Abstract : There have been many systems developed for computer processing of natural languages such as English. One of these, known as NLP, is being developed at the Naval Postgraduate School. Another system, based on Conceptual Dependency theory, is being developed at Stanford University. The two systems, while having somewhat similar goals, use different internal representations of information. A means was devised for representing the structures of Conceptual Dependency theory in NLP, and methods were developed for conversion of information between NLP's existing representation and that of Conceptual Dependency theory.
