This paper describes the basic process and related technologies of natural language understanding, and it focuses on the Glue Semantics and DRT. The authors designs and develops a semantic computing system based on Glue Semantics and DRT.Then the design ideas, concrete implementation and key technologies, as well as existing problems are introduced in details.

Key wordsNatural language understanding        Semantic computing        Syntactic analysis       Glue semantics       DRT
