What was early information retrieval like? (before it was called search!)
How was NLP first applied to the task?
Which levels of language analysis were utilized?
Which were successful? Which were not?
Why were other levels not incorporated ?
Do we now see that the higher levels can and need to be included?
If they are, how might they change how we do IR, as well as what tasks we use it for?
