Abstract : This paper focuses on the problem of constructing transportable natural-language interfaces, i.e., systems that can be adapted to provide access to databases for which they were not specifically handtailored. It describes an initial version of a transportable system, called TEAM(Transportable English Access Data Manager). The hypothesis underlying the research described in this paper is that the information required to for the adaptation can be obtained through an interactive dialogue with database management personnel who are not familiar with natural-language processing techniques.
