This paper describes a general approach to the design of natural language interfaces that has evolved during the development of DATALOG, an Eng- lish database query system based on Cascaded ATN grammar. By providing separate representation schemes for linguistic knowledge, general world knowledge, and application domain knowledge, DATALOG achieves a high degree of portability and extendability.
