Event-units are expressed in Lan- guage Information Structnrc (LIS) form and the projection of LIS from a sentence is f)cffonned by a semantic engine. ABEX (ABstraction EX- traction system) utilizes the LIS outpttt of the semantic engine. ABI';X can extract events from sentences and classify them. Since ABEX and the LIS form nsc only limited knowledge, the system need not construct or nlaintain a large amount of knowledge.
