The paper proposes a multimodal interface for a real sales database application. We show how natural lan- guage processing may be integrated with a visual, di- rect manipulation method of database query, to pro- duce a user interface which supports a flexible form of query specification, provides implicit guidance about the coverage of the linguistic component, and allows more focused discourse reference.
