This paper presents an approach for representing queries in natural language as semantic networks. The semantic representation is intended to facilitate the translation between natural language and database queries. A domain agnostic algorithm, based on shallow features, is used to map a sentence to a sub-network of concepts within a larger ontology. This work focuses on transportation information systems and gives promising preliminary results.
