CIAO WEBCHAT Sample Queries

WEBCHAT can answer many questions written in English in a limited domain: geography. These are a few examples of the questions that it can answer. Note that in WEBCHAT capital letters beginning a word are not distinguished from lower case. If WEBCHAT does not understand a word it says so. WEBCHAT can answer several questions in one query. Note that more and more complete answers will be generated if the distributed access option is selected, since WEBCHAT then will have access to additional databases. Also, note that if the parallel execution option is selected the queries are (hopefully, if machine load allows) computed faster, specially if several questions are submitted simultaneously.
