In recent years, vast amount of knowledge in various fields is open to the public on the Web. This knowledge will be helpful for understanding natural language if it is used in a natural language processing system. With this background, we propose a method to generate SPARQL queries by reference to the knowledge iteratively. Besides, as an experiment to evaluate our proposed method, we plan to introduce our work to a service interaction at a robot cafeteria.
