|Abstract: ||Are natural language systems for database queries meeting
their goals? And, are these goals appropriate? The recently
completed Advanced Language Project at New York University
combined a field experiment with two laboratory studies to
examine these issues by comparing performance between subjects
using the formal database language SQL and subjects using the
prototype natural language system, USL. This paper describes
the design and results of the larger laboratory experiment.
The results presented offer some promise for the usability of
natural language under certain conditions.|
