2006 (English)In: 11th International Conference on Applications of Natural Language to Information Systems (NLDB-2006), 2006, 6- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper reopens the long dormant topic of natural language updates to databases. A protocol to handle database updates of the IDM (Insert-Delete-Modify) class is proposed and implemented. This protocol exploits modern relational update facilities and constraints and structures update dialogues using DAMSL dialogue acts. The protocol may be used with any natural language parser that maps to relational queries.
