An ellipsis resolution mechanism is presented. The mechanism is a part of a Natural Language Understanding System developed in the last years in order to be included as a main component of several projects based on man/machine interactions. CAPRA, an intelligent system for teaching programming, and GUAI, a natural language interfaces generator, are two of such applications. In our approach, syntactic and knowledge- based techniques are combined in order to get a great coverage of elliptical cases.
