A layered approach to information retrieval permits the inclusion of multiple search en- gines as well as multiple databases, with a natural language layer to convert English queries for use by the various search en- gines. The NLP layer incorporates mor- phological analysis, noun phrase syntax, and semantic expansion based on Word- Net.
