Abstract : This report describes an interface to IRUS, a natural language system currently running on a Symbolics Lisp machine. The interface provides multiple pane displays and mouse and keyboard input and can be tailored to the needs of a particular application by building upon the generic capabilities described and illustrated in this report. The current applications for this interface include FRESH, an expert system developed as part of the Strategic Computing Program, and WOL, a window-oriented relational database query language. Keywords: Natural language interface, IRUS, Strategic computing.
