The common information retrieval in the e-commerce system is the customer's requests for the merchandise information which is provided by the shopping mall. The rapid increase of online shopping mall and internet users requires more efficient conditional searching method about various goods. Moreover, it is necessary that the set of results should be very relevant to the exact intent of users. To offer relevant information to users, natural language support for information retrieval can be considered. However, the ambiguity of natural language makes difficult to apply to the commercial systems. In this paper, we propose a method for natural language query processing through fuzzy inference for the information retrieval to resolve the ambiguity of natural language. From analysed natural language queries by a morphological analyzer, a template is constructed. Then the template is transformed into a database query using fuzzy inference to offer relevant information to users.
