Multimedia data processing is becoming more and more a central concern among the people who have been working on image processing. Multimedia database retrieval is one of such a problem. A foreign language study assisting system is a good example for a multimedia data base design. Because each language depends on conversational situation such as topic and speech intention as well as place of conversation.In that case, we can not neglect the semantic aspect of multimedia information. The author's group has already proposed a semantic structure description form, called the SD-form, of the language meaning. They studied the feasibility of its application to natural language generation, story understanding, and conversational text retrieval systems. This paper presents our new attempt to expand our previous system from a text database systems to a multimedia database system which include motion picture, speech sound as well as language text. the source of the data in this project is a series of bilingual TV drama broadcasted in Japan. The most important point is this attempt is that each video scene is described by a set of SD-forms by which scenes are retrieved semantically.
