Abstract:A system which displays information graphically, and also allows natural language queries, should allow these queries to interrogate the displayed (visual) information. Ideally this would use some uniform method for processing queries both about the display and about the world model. Such a system would have to cope with ambiguities introduced by these two sources of information. These ambiguities, and a preliminary proposal for a system to deal with it, are the main topics of this paper.
