This paper presents a detailed evaluation of the parsing strategies of a syntactic-semantic component (SYNSEM) within a natural language spoken man- machine dialogue system. After giving a brief account of the DIAL dialogue system, we present the evaluation methodology which has been applied to a representative sample of utterances. The sample, the parsing strategies and results are extensively discussed.
