Start

Start, which has been on the Web since 1999, is perhaps the oldest web-based natural language search engine. As with Ask.com, users can post natural language queries and generally get information that is on-topic. Start was developed at MIT by Dr. Boris Katz.

At the other end of the temporal spectrum, WolframAlpha.com is a new natural language search engine that is slated to launch this month.
