Hi Everybody !
(...Hi Dr Nick!)

I'm interested in 'fuzzifying' my approach to a long standing project
regarding natural language parsing.

I would like to know if there is a sensible way to apply fuzzy logic
to this area, if so, are there any papers available? Equally important
- if not, why not? Understanding why something doesn't work can also
lead you to a better understanding of a problem too!

The application of this project is to allow a user to enter a query,
then(using a given set of natural language parsing rules), break apart
the sentence or paragraph into meaningful chunks, and hopefully apply
some fuzzy logic to provide some context. This would result in being
able to 'understand' the query better, and provide more relevant
answers.

As always, my huge appreciation for anyones time,

Dan ;-)
