The GE NLTooLsET is a set of text interpretation tools designed to be easily adapted to ne w domains. This report summarizes the system and its performance on the MUG-4 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 language analysis strategy in the NLTooLsET uses fairly detailed, chart-style syntactic parsing guided by conceptual expectations . Domain-driven conceptual struct...
