In this work, we describe the architecture of an intelligent interface that improves the effectiveness of full text retrieval methods through the semantic interpretation of user’s queries in natural language (NL). This interface comprises a user-expert module that integrates a dynamic model of human memory with a NL parser. This paper concentrates on the problem of the elaboration of index patterns out of specific cases or instances. The structure of the dynamic memory of cases and parsing techniques are also discussed.
