Message 1: Natural Language to SQL

Subject: Natural Language to SQL

I'm in search of commercial systems that are natural language front
ends for relational databases. The user enters english queries and
the system kicks out sql. Does anybody have any experience with any
of these systems and can recommend one? Currently I'm using a system
from Natural Language and it seems to have problems dealing with some
of the things we need to do.

Thanks,

Chris

We have need of a two-byte ascii representation for the IPA. The
system should be reasonably complete in that it can cover at least the
phonemes (and their allophones) for the more commonly spoken
languages. In addition, it would be ideal if it were fairly widely
used (we don't want to use an idiosyncratic set of symbols, if at all
possible). If you know where I can find such a set, please send mail
to me directly. Thanks.
