We demonstrate a system for flexible querying against text that has been anno- tated with the results of NLP processing. The system supports self-overlapping and parallel layers, integration of syntactic and ontological hierarchies, flexibility in the format of returned results, and tight inte- gration with SQL. We present a query lan- guage and its use on examples taken from the NLP literature.
