An approach is described for supplying se- lectional restrictions to parsers in natural language interfaces (NLIs) to databases by extracting the selectional restrictions from semantic descriptions of those NLIs. Au- tomating the process of finding selectional restrictions reduces NLI development time and may avoid errors introduced by hand- coding selectional restrictions.
