The GE NLTooLSET is a set of text interpretation tools designed to be easily adapted to new domains. This report summarizes the system and its performance on the MUG-3 task. INTRODUCTIO N The GE NLTooLsET aims at extracting and deriving useful information from text using a knowledge-based, domain-independent core of text processing tools, and customizing the existing programs to each new task . The program achieves this transportability by using a core knowledge base and lexicon that adapts easil y to new applications, along with a flexible text processing strategy that is tolerant of gaps in the program' s knowledge base. The NLTooLSET's design provides each system component with access to a rich hand-coded knowledg e base, but each component applies the knowledge selectively, avoiding th...
