1. A computer-implemented method comprising:
receiving, using a processor having natural language processing functionality, a body of input text;
using information extraction functionality of the processor to extract preliminary information comprising a relational table from the body of input text;
determining, based on the preliminary information, one or more geographical contexts associated with the input text;
determining, based on the preliminary information and the one or more geographical contexts associated with the input text, inferred information; and
augmenting the relational table with the inferred information;
responsive to receiving a query associated with the relational table, generating a geographically-contextual query response comprising information that is based on the inferred information, wherein the geographically-contextual query response comprises a response providing geographically-contextual information about one or more of:
a locality in relation to a phone number format, an address format or a date format;
a nationality associated with a currency; and
compliance issues.
