A major difficulty we have had to overcome is that the dialogues are real ones with numerous ungrammatical utterances. The approach we have devised to cope with this problem is reported here. I THE INCREMENTAL, MULTILEVEL PARSING FORMALISM In recent NLU-systems a major impor- tance is lald on processing non-standard input.l) The present paper reports on the experiences we have made in the project "Procedural Dialogue Models" reconstruc- ting task~oriented dialogues, which were uttered in a rather colloquial German.2) To this aim we have developed an incre- mental multilevel parsing formalism (Chri...
