Abstract : For five years the End-User Friendly Interfaces to Data management (EUFID) project team at System Development Corporation worked on the design and implementation of a Natural-Language Interface (NLI) system that was to be independent of both the application and the database management system. In this paper we describe application, natural-language and database management problems involved in NLI development, with specific reference to the EUFID system as an example.
