Most Natural Language Processing sys- tems use a sequential architecture em- bodying classical linguistic layers. When one works with a general language and not a sublanguage, there are different cases of ambiguities at difterent classi- cal levels; and more particularly when one works on COml)lex language t)henom- ena analysis (coordination, ellipsis, nega- tion)... it is ditfic.ult to take into account all the different types of these construc- tions with a general grammar. Indeed, the inconvenience of this approach is the possible risk of a combinatory explosion. So, we have defined the TALISMAN ar- chitecture that includes linguistic agents that corrost)ond either to classical lev- els in linguistics (morI)hology, syntax, se- mantic) or to coml)lex language phcnoln- ena analysis.
