Bos, Edwin, Huls, Carla and Claassen, Wim (1994): EDWARD: Full Integration of Language and Action in a Multimodal User Interface. In International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, 40 (3) pp. 473-495.
This paper presents EDWARD, a multimodal user interface fully integrating several interface styles, viz. natural language (Dutch), manipulation of graphical representations, menus, and command language. The focus is on the following two issues: (1) the new design principle of making all interface styles available at all times; and (2) the new generic approach in processing referring expressions, which is applied both in interpretation and generation, for all sorts of expressions, including multimodal deictic expressions such as "put that there" with simultaneous pointing gestures. EDWARD is a generic interface, currently applied to the file system domain.

Claassen, Wim, Bos, Edwin, Huls, Carla and Smedt, Koenraad De (1993): Commenting on Action: Continuous Linguistic Feedback Generation. In: Gray, Wayne D., Hefley, William and Murray, Dianne (eds.) International Workshop on Intelligent User Interfaces 1993 January 4-7, 1993, Orlando, Florida, USA. pp. 141-148.
Action mode interfaces, in which users achieve their goals by manipulating representations, suffer from some fundamental disadvantages. In this paper, we present a working prototype of a system called Continuous Linguistic Feedback Generator (CLFG), a facility that addresses the major disadvantages. CLFG generates natural language descriptions of the actions the user is performing. These descriptions are presented in both the visual and audio channels. The knowledge sources and algorithm that enable CLFG to provide relevant and concise information are described in detail.

Dijkstra, Alice, Huls, Carla and Damen, Han (1993): User Responses to an Editor Supporting Syntactic Selection Method. In: Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 1993. pp. 627-632.
Present-day text editors only allow users to apply delete, copy, move, etc., operations to arbitrary text fragments, and to typographically defined text fragments such as characters, word-like fragments, lines, and paragraphs. This paper investigates the usefulness of a text editor equipped with a facility that enables users to select and manipulate linguistically defined text fragments, e.g. sentences, constituents (containing one or more words) and words, by simple keystrokes. We present the results of an empirical evaluation study where users are offered this facility in addition to traditional methods of operating on text fragments. We tested whether or not users would actually decide to apply the functions to linguistic arguments and how we could positively influence that decision by means of our user interface design.

Proceedings of the Seventh Conference of the British Computer Society Human Computer Interaction Specialist Group - People and Computers VII August 15-18, 1992, University of York, UK. pp. 291-306.
We developed a structured approach to designing word processing functionality in an editorial support environment (ESE). Four types of functions are distinguished: text editing, text checking, layout editing and layout checking. These functions can be applied to three types of arguments: Content-based; Media-based; and User-based arbitrary text fragments. We describe how the framework can serve as a basis for research into useful editorial support functionality, for research into user interface design and for research into learning how to use a word processor.
