Abstract : The work presented here is part of the PROTEUS (Prototype Text Understanding System) project, whose objective is to understand short narrative messages about equipment installed in Navy ships. Casualty Reports (CASREPs) describe failures of this equipment, together with maintenance actions performed by the crew on board. In order to build system that understands this type of message, detailed knowledge of the domain of discourse is essential to the different phases of the test analysis (syntactic, semantic and discourse analysis).
