This paper presents research on semantic interpretation in a spoken dialogue system. The Template-based Semantic Interpreter is developed to perform robust understanding of Chinese in an e-mail reading dialogue system which understands the userís commands and performs operations on e-mails. It is based on a robust parser of Chinese developed for this purpose. Experiments have been made with the combination of speech recognition and interpretation to show the robustness of the interpreter.
